  • The Divine Comedy

    One of the greatest works in literature, Dante's story-poem is an allegory that represents mankind as it exposes itself, by its merits or demerits, to the rewards or the punishments of justice. A single listen will reveal Dante's visual imagination and uncanny power to make the spiritual visible.

    What about Ralph Cosham’s performance did you like?

    He read like he was telling a tale, rather than reading a book. It takes a little effort for a modern reader / listener to understand the old fashioned language but his pace is the perfect balance. He's slow enough that you are able to process and understand but not so slow that it's condescending or dragging. He clearly understood what he was reading and used inflection masterfully to help convey emotion, meaning, and intention.


    Any additional comments?

    Some other reviews complained about the reader adding in descriptions. This is how the Divine Comedy is written by Dante. If you're looking to add the Divine Comedy to your cannon you can't go wrong with this performance.

    (1986)

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I couldn't truly rate the book well, the narration was horrid. He truly made listening to even the first hour of this book (all that I could get through) a chore!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His shrill voice for children, terrible 'falsetto' for women and drudging pace made this the worst audiobook I have ever purchased.
