  • Antigone

    • ORIGINAL (1 hr and 47 mins)
    • By Jean Anouilh
    • Narrated By Elizabeth Marvel, Full Cast

    The body of Polynices, Antigone's brother, has been ordered to remain unburied by Creon, the new king of Thebes. Antigone defies the law, sealing her fate. Originally produced in Paris during the Nazi occupation, Anouilh's Antigone was seen by the French as theatre resistance and by Germans as an affirmation of authority.

    Joshua says: "A classic is given a fabulous update!"
    "Antigone acomplished"

    This is a deeply beautiful rendition of the play!! That acting is superb, the pace perfect and even the music is quite interesting!

  • The Comedians

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 8 mins)
    • By Graham Greene
    • Narrated By Joseph Porter

    Three men meet on a ship bound for Haiti, where corruption and terror reign. Disillusioned and noncommittal, they are the “comedians” of Greene’s title, hiding from life’s pain and love behind their chosen masks.

    Darwin8u says: "We are bad comedians, we aren't bad men"
    "Worst reader ever"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It is a wonderful, disturbing story. I would not recommend this version because the reader preforms his task so poorly. I have listened to dozens of recorded books. This was the worst performance I have heard.

    What other book might you compare The Comedians to and why?

    The End of the Affair, of course.

    How could the performance have been better?

    I was astounded at how badly the book was read. The reader's attempts at accents were...I don't know what to say...a little like a stew made by a drunken house-painter. Beyond that, the reader betrayed no understanding of timing, inflection, or the intent of the author. He almost manages to ruin the story itself...but not quite.

  • Dune

    • UNABRIDGED (21 hrs and 8 mins)
    • By Frank Herbert
    • Narrated By Scott Brick, Orlagh Cassidy, Euan Morton, and others

    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    Joshua says: "Wonderful production!"
    "Greatest Sci-fi novel. Amature performance."
    How could the performance have been better?

    Oh my god, the actors were so bad that the producer could not decide to use them or not. They really broke the performance badly. Thankfully, he resisted the temptation for 90% of the novel which was read by a competent reader.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I read Dune when I was 17. I remember the sadness of finishing a book I did not want to have end. I felt that sadness again.

    Any additional comments?

    Avoid using actors. Even good actors just ruin the flow of reading.

  • The Kill Artist

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 34 mins)
    • By Daniel Silva
    • Narrated By George Guidall
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    After the assassination of his wife and son, Gabriel Allon retires from his brutal anti-terrorist career and loses himself in his previous cover job: art restoration. But when Tariq al-Hourani, the Palestinian terrorist responsible for his family’s death, begins a killing spree designed to destroy Middle East peace talks, Gabriel once again slips into the shadowy world of international intrigue. In a global game of hide-and-seek, the motives of Gabriel and Tariq soon become more personal than political.

    Snoodely says: "Reluctant Assassin"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Had the story been less than completely predictable with tired characters trotted out for the millionth time, this book would have been stunning!!

    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    He reads English like a champ.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It is, for the most-part, grammatically correct.

    Any additional comments?
