Charles Leggett's reading is absolutely masterful--it's a shame he didn't have better material to work with. All his verbal skill couldn't get me to the end of this book. I gave up with only an hour left to go, which should give you a sense of how much excitement builds toward the conclusion. Borges could get away with describing the "indescribable," because his fiction was elegant and SHORT. Bear inundates his readers (listeners) with layer after layer of turgid, non-evocative description of perceptual impossibilities. Definitely to be avoided!
