Great novel beautifully read. No one could match Grover Gardner's reading: he makes this difficult novel accessible and a pleasure to hear.
A "must-hear" for high school and college students assigned this for English lit.
Stick with it; this book is surprisingly good,funny very Irish
His research is very interesting and the conclusions are useful but the book is needlessly long (even at 7 hours).
I'd prefer an abridged version, if there was one.
This are great stories full of insight, humor, and
complexity. The narrator, Lorna Raver, is amazing; she can mimic voices of her characters, male or female, with uncanny realism. Highly recommended on all counts.
Kingsley Amis has written other great books besides "Lucky Jim"; this is one of them.
Great story read by a truly mavelous reader
My favorite "listen" in 2004.
T.C Boyle knows of what he writes and Richard Poe has the perfect pitch in his narration of this great novel. Anyone living in the 60's will squirm with embarrassment upon hearing the way we were.
Having just enjoyed "Carry On Jeeves" by the same reader (on CD), I found this rendition rather dull; the story is not one of Wodehouse's best.
Unforgettable tour of Chicago and its people in the 20's 30's and 40's.
