It's old. It's still funny. It's Douglas. The only thing that would have made this recording better would have been Alan Rickman as the Robot (which he was in the TV version!). Introduced my nephew (11 yrs) to Douglas with this recording and he loved it.
The characterisations are great. Film runs the risk of ruining your own imagined cahracters after reading the book. But audio is quite safe.
Read the book first
A worthy blast from the past
I would certainly listen again...because Alexander has a way of making me giggle on the way to work. I take delight in his subtle humour and understated seriousness of thought.
All of it
All of it
No. I like to savour every section. Slowly
I wish these books were not abridged!
Why does a search for silence so often mean an investigation of noise?
Touched on topics I had never heard of before.
Even without the visual, this play still comes alive in this audio version. Who would have thought it... the voices of Mr Dursley and Wallace in the same play!? The actors are brilliant and gave me an introduction to A Midsummer's that will lead to further study. Thanks
Anyone with an interest in WW2, or in theology, or in church history, or in inspiring personalities, should read this book. The reader does a great job of representing the various characters using small changes in tone and accent. Well Done.
