I listened to Underworld and loved it. i read other DD novels in print and also really liked them, but it will be impossible for me to purchase other DD audiobooks read by Mr. Prichard. He has no sense of pause, no sense of character, his voice is atonal and without inflections. I have no idea how some people become book readers..... this was not as bad as books read by Mr. Frederick Davidson but close.... please Audible have someone else perform these books!!!
Perhaps it is because I never found British literature profound or intriguing that I also did not like Chrome Yellow. Perhaps is that I do not understand British humor, but the book was not comical, nor it did portray a psychological picture of the characters. It was on the other hand, a good snapshot of the social dynamics of the era, but the characters lacked emotional depth and the situations were shallow and disconnected. The narrator did an excellent job, however. If you like Dickens and other British authors, then this book might be ok. If you enjoy the depth of Ayn Rand, Dostoevsky, Faulkner's characters, then do not read/listen to this book.
