Molina's reading of this classic is just spell binding. I could listen to the way he pronounces the Greek names endlessly!
gods vs man, man vs man, gods vs gods. Timeless
really all of them
skip the incredibly long, pedantic chapters by the translator....
I preferred his first one, which was more Hollywood-anecdote laden
well they're not really "characters"...
nothing.. he's a really good reader of his own writing
there was more than I really care about his family and philosophies of childrearing.
Big McMurtry fans I suppose
no, but won't listen to others in the series.
I've loved Molina reading The Iliad and Treasure Island... this was flat and uninteresting. Hugely disappointing
not to me.. I stopped listening after about 1 hour
Did not enjoy any of the characters, or the storyline.
Absolutely would recommend. A classic story, brilliantly read.
This is not a book where a character is a "favorite". That's not a bad thing
I'm not usually a fan of Branagh, but his performance here is incredible. As someone else wrote, he tells this as if it's a ghost story. Completely compelling.
Just overall extreme pleasure in the telling
It's not a story that fills in every detail.... in some ways you want more.
loved it, but once is probably enough
A classic pirate tale, really fun.
His reading of THE ILIAD is awesome. This matches it. Fantastic voice characterizations though sometimes the accents are a little thick. I wish he read more books. He's one of the best for "acting" the book, not just reading it.
of course it's not sophisticated, so don't expect Jane Austin. It's perfect, of its type.
Ridiculous plot gaps and inconsistencies; "surprise" denouement that is completely predictable; racist and sexist depictions of the black and female characters. Unpleasant protagonists. Incredibly boring trial scenes.
voices of black characters bordered on racist caricature
yes.. great story, great performance. Classic
not so much since I had seen the Hitchock classic movie (which is also great)
It takes her a few chapters to move from a plain reading to a fullout performance, but once she does, she's awesome. It really turns into a riproaring performance
I rarely listen to autobiographies more than once, so it's no knock on this title that I wouldnt listen to it again
The portrayal of Keaton's mother and her struggle with dementia was surprising and moving. It's really a story of family relationships.
Keaton's openness about her bulimia
I could have done without the Keaton giggles but otherwise an outstanding performance
