Profound depth emerges with the exploration of vivid characters and hilarity of dialogues.
It's a short piece masterfully written and gorgeously performed. Like all great short pieces, it manages to deliver a tremendous amount with powerful brevity.
The pathos of this piece remind me of Jeanette Winterson's The Passion. Although the form of the prose, as intended for an "afternoon drama", is quite unlike anything else I've listened to.
He's absolutely stunning. His voice conveys incredible depth and a wide range of emotions: longing, pain, recognition, obsession, surprise, regret, resignation... I hung on to every word. How delightful to see him shine in a serious drama/literary piece.
I listened to it twice in two days. Each time a somewhat different facet is revealed. The poignancy of the prose and the mastery of the actor(s) make this piece unforgetable.
Timeless theme of love and passion. Magnificently written and breathtakingly performed.
I'd pass unless you're just dying for anything Torchwood
I honestly can't find anything memorable
Everything. I concur with other reviewers on the observation that JB doesn't sound like Cap Jack in this book.
He's fantastic in all the other TW audio books. But I can't hear Jack's swagger and humor in this one. Could be the odd studio effect. Could be that the story just lacks character development. JB sounds rigid, wooden, and just flat. No character distinctions at all, like he is bored stiff himself.
Not this one
The other Torchwood audio books with the entire cast are great. Short, yes, but satisfying. This one just doesn't live up to TW standard.
