Wonderful comic novel by Wodehouse. His subtle, elegant use of language is a pleasure. David Thorn is a tremendous interpreter, I wish he would record more Wodehouse.
I'm so glad that this audio edition gives the name of the translator. I wish the name of the translator was always included.
I don't like David Case's low, growling, pressed voice (what therapists call "vocal fry"), but I appreciate all the qualities which Case brings: intelligence, pacing, characterization, etc. He mispronounces the hero's name, Julien (should rhyme with 'bien').
A wonderful, complex portrait of post-Revolution France, and of the idealistic hero, grappling with the shallow, hypocritical society he lives in. Highly recommended.
What a wonderful, challenging, philosophical, fantastical short story by Dostoyevsky. The narrator is very clear and well-paced. Audio quality is OK.
Pretty good selection of Tolstoy stories. I'm guessing the narrator is from South Africa? and I find his accent distracting. "A mahhn raised his hahhnd..." Every 'r' nicely rolled.
There are many better short story collections available.
Terrible sound quality. Hard to understand. Get the other audio performance with Jonathan Cecil.
Dreamy, philosophical, poetic journey of a young writer in 1890's London. Machen's wonderful use of language as sensual, evocative experience is rewarding. Now I want to read other Machen writings. The narrator was excellent, and I hope that we will see other Machen audiobooks in the future.
Nothing is identified in this audiobook. No titles, no authors, no readers.
It needs a table of contents, and the titles and speakers should be identified.
The sound quality is very uneven, sometimes bad.
That is hard to say, since no poems or titles are given.
