easy to understand and entertaining listen for a "non musical" person like me
Prof Greenberg seems to be speaking directly to you - his speech is clear, interesting and very entertaining
I certainly laughed ( must understand American humour )
I'm hooked! I've downloaded two more series ( opera and jazz )
I didn't read the book and found the perfomance difficult to comprehend ( slurred accents and irritating voices ) - too much repetition of the same lines ( as if the book had been laid down and same lines repeated when picked up again )
I think the narrator did his best but his style is not suitable to the tale. He would probably do much better reading Dickens
I will buy the book and read it
... I should have savoured the story by reading it first and listening to it the second time around ! A wonderfully spun and captivating tale that merits a comfortable chair and enough time to dream ...
can be compared to Philip Pullman's "Dark Materials" or Roger Zelanzy's " Amber Chronicles" which are both just a bit more fantastic/ modern than CS Lewis' "Narnia Chronicles"
I think "Name of the Wind " has become my favourite.
I have read Atlas Shrugged twice and listened to it once. Ayn Rand's protest against communism is communicated in such a way that can only be an enormous eye openner for an 'outsider'. Before you attack this huge book, I suggest reading "We the living " and "The Fountainhead "
A is A - when you have to remember your priorities in life, this is an extemist appoach that merits consideration. The text and language may be long winded and dated ( remember it was written in 1957 by an author from the Soviet Union ) but the values and morals expressed should never be forgotten.
FABULOUS performance. For such a lengthy and sometimes long winded book, Scott Brick communicates the complex emotions to perfection. The snivelling bureaucrat, the whining employee, the undeserving and pretentious wife ... he conveys all themes with skill.
the best performances by the reader were the scenes of confrontation between the industrialists and their "mooching" families and so called friends - such as the 11th anniversay party scene.
I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book and will listen to it again .
what an excellent story! there are no dull moments with this insight to another world war ll horror situation, - just when you think that the end of the story is near, another chapter and more amazing circumstances arise. a good story with a good moral.
