    The year is 3149, and a vast paper destroying blight-papyralysis-has obliterated much of the planet's written history. However, these rare memoirs, preserved for centuries in a volcanic rock, record the strange life of a man trapped in a hermetically sealed underground community.

    Would you listen to Memoirs Found in a Bathtub again? Why?

    The particular book is better read then heard because as with many scatological type books its hard to maintain focus on the story. The book itself is classic Lem and if you like his wilily style you'll enjoy this book.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Woodman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Jeff Woodman is quite an excellent narrator and does a good job on a difficult book.

  • Tropic of Cancer

    Now hailed as an American classic, Tropic of Cancer, Henry Miller's masterpiece, was banned as obscene in this country for 27 years after its first publication in Paris in 1943. Only a historic court ruling that changed American censorship standards, ushering in a new era of freedom and frankness in modern literature, permitted the publication of this first volume of Miller's famed mixture of memoir and fiction.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Too bad all of Henry Millers books are not audiobooks. Definitely one of the best writers I have come in contact with. Although there are massive ramblings, there are also very focused rants that hit a cord.


    What does Campbell Scott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Campbell is a good reader but I thought he could have been a bit scruffier to match the drunken nature of the character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, there is too much to think about, I actually wanted to roll back the audio and revisit passages; not so easy in audio format.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this in book format years ago and this audio version really intrigued me to go back and read all of the Henry Miller books again.

    Story
    (978)

    Amidst the decaying splendor and poisonous intrigue of Chalion's ancient capital, Cazaril is forced to confront not only powerful enemies but also the malignant curse that clings to the royal household, trapping him, flesh and soul, in a maze of demonic paradox, damnation, and death for as long as he dares walk the five-fold pathway of the gods.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I kept waiting for something to happen but it never did. It's like Roger Zelanzy's writing but without the story, and without the characters.
