Too bad all of Henry Millers books are not audiobooks. Definitely one of the best writers I have come in contact with. Although there are massive ramblings, there are also very focused rants that hit a cord.
Campbell is a good reader but I thought he could have been a bit scruffier to match the drunken nature of the character.
No, there is too much to think about, I actually wanted to roll back the audio and revisit passages; not so easy in audio format.
I read this in book format years ago and this audio version really intrigued me to go back and read all of the Henry Miller books again.
I kept waiting for something to happen but it never did. It's like Roger Zelanzy's writing but without the story, and without the characters.
The particular book is better read then heard because as with many scatological type books its hard to maintain focus on the story. The book itself is classic Lem and if you like his wilily style you'll enjoy this book.
Jeff Woodman is quite an excellent narrator and does a good job on a difficult book.
