This is the worst narrator I have listened to, actually painful in his exaggerations. I wish I had checked the other possible narrators for the book before purchasing this one, I really wanted to hear the story, but it was so truly awful I couldn't do it. Hate to buy it all over again with a different narrator. Ugh!
Just read the story, with dignity. Stop with all the silly exaggerated breathing and yawning and gravelly, bored voice. The interpretive garbage actually damaged the story line, made it hard to follow. Grrrrr.
The narrator absolutely captured the dialog and the characters so well that when I went back to watch the movie again, I could not believe that it was a let down. I LOVE Vivian Leigh and Clark Gable - they have always been Scarlet and Rhett, but this was better. THIS WAS BETTER because this narrator is so fabulous.
The story is a classic. From beginning to end an American story, one of the best ever written.
