    Goethe's masterpiece and perhaps the greatest work in German literature, Faust has made the legendary German alchemist one of the central myths of the Western world. Here indeed is a monumental Faust, an audacious man boldly wagering with the devil, Mephistopheles, that no magic, sensuality, experience or knowledge can lead him to a moment he would wish to last forever.

    Beasley says: "Great work, decent translation, poor narration"
    "Where's Part II???"

    Any additional comments?

    This audio book is advertised as unabridged, and true it is the unabridged recording of Part I of George Madison Priest's excellent translation of Goethe's classic story, but where is Part II? I feel that calling this an unabridged version is very misleading - in fact I feel cheated out of hearing the centuries long controversial redemption of Goethe's Faust at the end of Part II. Hope Audible corrects this and publishes Part II - unabridged.
