    What did you love best about The Circular Ruins?

    For such a short story this one really makes you think. I would highly recommend it to anyone. The narrator did a good job of bringing it to life as well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There is a question as to how many characters there are.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    There was no dialogue, so this question is also irrelevant.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It's only about 20 minutes. I listened to it twice in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Do it! It's great!

    In 1865 Boston, the members of the Dante Club, poets and Harvard professors Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes, and James Russell Lowell, along with publisher J. T. Fields, are finishing America's first translation of The Divine Comedy and preparing to unveil Dante's remarkable visions to the New World.

    Story

    I read this book in college and gave a copy to several friends and family members afterward because I was so taken by it. I hadn't read it in a while, and was thrilled to find it on audible, because I have a lot of things that I've been needing to do, but many of them don't require that I use my entire brain, so I've been able to listen to it while I clean house, craft, etc. It was wonderfully read! I was thoroughly pleased with the performance, and I think that I got a completely different experience from reading the book. I would highly recommend both this book and this author to anyone. And as far as this book is concerned, I would recommend both the written and the audio versions.
