I haven't seen the print version, but I suspect so. I LOVE the narrator and imagine that Mitch would sound just like him - in an American sort of way.
There are too many to mention...
He's got a wonderful voice. He's interesting to listen to and sounds so charming.
Of light and dark in the tunnel, in the bedroom and on film.
I could listen to as many of these books as Daniel Carter is willing to read. I enjoy the book and the presentations!
I really only get to listen to books these days. I have a fairly long commute to work so books have become my favorite road companion. In this case, on listening to Song of Achilles a second time, I went on line to order a hard-cover print edition. I felt compelled to actively read the words - just beautiful writing.
It's hard to say what I loved the most - I suppose the language... Ms. Miller's writing is beautiful and seamless and poetic. Frazer Douglas reads the text with sensitivity and character and heart. I could listen to him read anything.
I don't cry at books, but listening to the scene where Patroclus goes off to battle in the guise of Achilles, I found myself in tears on each hearing. Again - at the end of the book, I had to wipe tears from my eyes.
I wouldn't - the title is perfect... It fits in beautifully with Patroclus' final 'this and this and this' speech.
If I had only one book to listen to for the rest of my life - Song of Achilles would be it. I love it.
the two main characters
tried to play down the fact that every quote has an adverb describing how the statement is made.
it already has one, i believe.
I really do loved the two main characters, Ty and Zane. It really is tiring listening to the flurry of 'wryly, wearily, sarcastically, wearily." Someone should edit these a bit.
