The combination of Tolstoy's high definition rendering of his character's complex hearts and minds with the virtuosity of this narrator's gifts results in a rare audiobook experience here. Hold on to your hat and prepare yourself for a real donkey kick of an ending. This is a classic for a reason. It is a masterpiece.
What an astounding piece of writing. I am grateful for it, and feel enriched by it. V. Woolf achieves extraordinary things in this work, and I will go back to it several times before I can hope to see inside of it all. Phylidda Law's performance is absolutely beautiful and in my opinion adds a tremendous amount to the experience. Heartfelt thanks to all involved.
Absolutely delicious. Jeremy Irons takes this incredibly imaginative, hilarious tale and makes it into pure ear candy. If only it were 10 hours instead of two. This is an real gem, and certainly not just for kids...in fact, I enjoyed and appreciated it much more in 2005 than I did in `1975. You can't possibly regret this listen!
This show delivers very little useful information. You will sit through hours of infuriatingly unfunny jokey radio show drivel hoping that the intelligent, incisive, informative discussion is about to begin, but it never does. This was very disappointing, and a complete waste of time. Three words for this show: no thank you.
