Compelling, fluent, beautiful.
Nicholas Nickelby. Both have characterisations that are descriptively magnificent and story lines that 'race' along in a linguistically serpentine adventure.
William Dorrit ( little Dorrit's father).
Funny .......but yes if the truth must be known I have taken to extra long walks just to listen.
Charles Dickens is my penchant at the moment. Simon Vance has made the journey just that much more colorful.
What a delightful, warm, moving human drama covering the complexities of human nature in a most compelling story.
The reading was somewhat irritating in that the reader Noah (?) swallows the last part of the sentences and makes listening difficult. Perhaps the cadence of his voice is not suitable for this kind of recording as the lows are almost mumbled.
The historic background and the credible characters.
No. I wanted to read and think and then read some more.
Very interesting historic and geographical points in the book that made me research a little further. The underlying love story was poignant and added to the edginess of the characters wartime experiences
Hmmm not for a long while... I love the buzz that the anticipation gives me and now that I know where the plot takes me.. well I will read another of his novels and go for another ride.
Great and gripping plot.
Somehow he fleshes the characters out.
Once again a great ride and terrific entertainment that takes me away from the academic literature which I need to read.
It's was riveting, touching, aweful and compelling. Well researched and a great read. It just ended somewhat abruptly with what I felt were a few loose ends. Highly recommended.
Had to giggle at his feminine voices. But great reader.
The pain that Bosch felt when he first came out of the "death house" having viewed all the trophies.
Well, I have to rate it near to the top in the Classical Category.
When I realised that Anna was losing her mind.
The disconnect between Anna and Vronsky...he loved her and she was just so self absorbed that her jealousy rendered her irrational.
Oh what a great literary journey with Tolstoy's 'succulent' characters couched in history, politics, economic, agriculture, philosophy, culinary delight,s sex, drugs, royalty and fippary.
