Because of Alex Jennings, yes. Though, of course, Julian Barnes is to blame. What a combination!
Hard to say, when I was laughing so hard
He's always wonderful
I would listen to Alex Jennings read the phone book!
No. Once was enough.
I thought I was going to be able to write a review, instead I'm answering questions that are not, IMO, the questions that this book raises. My only complaint about the book is that the narrator is a bit flat-toned and has no clue how to pronounce French words/phrases. Other than that, a thoroughly worthwhile book.
I started listening to this book, then wondered if the print version was in dialect. To an extent, but nothing like what Alex Jennings does with the voices and the accents. To my mind, this is a case where the spoken version is better than the written.
The accents, the tone of the characters. It's a masterful piece of work.
Certainly not Lionel!
I realize that life is short and there are only so many books a man can read. But please, let Alex Jennings do as many as possible before he's worn out. His reading of "A History of the World in Ten and a Half Chapters" by Julian Barnes is not to be missed!
I wouldn't know
Sonny was funny
I would listen to Alex Jennings read the phone book -- wait, they don't have phone books anymore...
Very much an ensemble piece, With ESA and AJ giving each character his/her own unique voice.
I was hoping the Melrose novels weren't that one (large) autobiographical novel everyone's got inside them, i.e. a fluke of sorts. No way. Edward St. Aubyn is the real thing and I eagerly await his next offering (read by Jennings, pleeeeeze!?)
