Best dramatization I've listened too.
Brannaugh's Richar both approachable and mysterious.
Terrific that much of his cast from Much Ado through As You Like It joined in.
A book about a book (though lengthy and multivolume, the Science and Civilisation of China remains a unitary work) about China through the lens of Joseph Needham. Eminently approachable for the western reader. Relatable as well, through the fusion of eros and logos in Needham.
The Age of Wonder, Holmes.
This is a must listen version. The production quality and acting is just phenomenal. I can't think of a better production in the attention to detail. Just a terrific use of sound effects and music first off; they don't take anything away from the production, which is hard to do in audio only format.
Anton Lesser's Hamlet is just first rate. The way he communicates the character in such an understandable way. Rarely have I empathized with a character so well. Standing ovation.
One of the Top 40 overall and in the Top 3 for dramatizations.
Low hanging fruit is Brutus for this question, but his followers were equally intriguing. Marc Antony terribly complex as well.
Amazing production, they and the rest if the cast really out a lot of effort in and it paid off.
A hodgepodge of fragmentary stories slapped together with no consistency of character or plot.
This is the Hamlet 2 of novels.
Guidall was great as usual.
My buddy recommended this and it was terrific. The novel itself was great, but I don't know how I'll listen to any other Moore novels that aren't read by Stevens - he did a terrific job!
