A little hard to keep up in the car, need to give this great book a read.
I wish I had this this all those years ago in O level history. At times I felt I was trapped in Kafka's "The Trial" such was the claustrophobic feel of the book.
The narration was like fabulous acting, excellent.
J' accuse !
A very good listen, very interesting.
Finding the sniper spots
The Real Lethal Weapon
Surprisingly good and easy to listen too.
It picks up from where the last finished, phew!
The return of the well worn characters and the continuation of the journey.
He's got a hold of the characters and continues his good work for this book too.
Oh yes, sat in my car (having arrived at my destination) not wanting to switch off. Excellent!
Who would of thought zombies would be so much fun...
Well it's not a classic and I thought I may give up on it. But wait, it gets better and in fact has a great storyline with a good engaging narrator and funny quirky characters too. You know a nice easy, entertaining read for the daily car journey.
I think it's the general or the sarge.
He's really good with the characters actually after persevering becomes addictive.
I don't think its that deep.
Stick with and enjoy the series for an easy listen. My daily commute is far more enjoyable with this book and if you love zombies...
The narration alone is marvellous.
The characters and the sheer size of the story, epic.
His voices are wonderful.
This was really enthralling...
It certainly did...
The attack on the gang
As the book, I guess.
A very good listen and I loved the the voice and dramatisation.
I really enjoyed this audio book, I looked forward to the journey and was left wanting more.
I guess I would say it was in the vain of a popular vampire series...
No I read the second and hope to listen to the third.
No but very enjoyable, I'm sure there is a message in there...
Great to listen to the audio for name pronunciations and I liked the reader too.
I love the film which always helps when listening to the audio as you can picture the characters and the house too.
Well, the audio wasn't the best went quiet on several occasions to the point it sounded as though it had been rerecorded. At one stage there was a very strange jump in the audio where I felt I had lost my place.
I would hope that Audible fix this, please. Overall the narration was good and captured the style of the author well.
As for the story, Ishiguro adopts a writing style where the reader / listener is asked to view the main character with some pathos. I found this extremely difficult until the scene in the bus shelter (near the end) where there is some recognition of his "...remains of the day. For this passage alone it is worth a listen.
I couldn't get hold of the book but the audio was excellent. I have seen the movie countless times and helped visualise the characters for the car journey. Unabridged really added depth to the story and was a good choice. The narration was spot on and the pace typically McCarthy.
