  • The Metaphysical Club

    • ABRIDGED (6 hrs and 53 mins)
    • By Louis Menand
    • Narrated By Henry Leyva

    Hardly a club in the conventional sense, the organization referred to in the title of this superb literary hybrid (part history, part biography, part philosophy) consisted of four members and probably existed for less than nine months.

    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader consistently mispronounces the name of one of the main historical characters. Charles Peirce is pronounced /ˈpɜrs/ like "purse"; Can't a paid reader take the time to look something like that up?

    Story

    It is the colour of a bleached skull, his flesh; and the long hair that flows below his shoulders is milk-white. From the tapering, beautiful head stare two slanting eyes, crimson and moody.

    Tony says: "Great Listen (Ignore the Sample Listen)"
    "A reader who is both melo and dramatic"

    Story
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The reader is so melodramatic and the background noise is so over emotional, that I cannot listen to what seems to be a fun story.
