This is a deeply beautiful rendition of the play!! That acting is superb, the pace perfect and even the music is quite interesting!
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.
The End of the Affair, of course.
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.
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.
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.
Avoid using actors. Even good actors just ruin the flow of reading.
Had the story been less than completely predictable with tired characters trotted out for the millionth time, this book would have been stunning!!
He reads English like a champ.
It is, for the most-part, grammatically correct.
