I hadn't read the book in decades, and hearing it as an Audible truly brought it to life. It was almost a completely new experience.
Another Steinbeck classic, East of Eden, which I'm about to order as another Audible book.
I can't say enough about Dylan's performance -- pacing, extremely distinctive voices of all the characters, an obvious understanding and love for the material. He brought a level of talent to his narration that made the entire literary experience more emotional and memorable. His Tom Joad sounded a lot like Henry Fonda (who played Tom in the classic film)!
Yes, but it's extremely long, so that wasn't possible.
This is a great way to re-acquaint yourself with one of the Great American Novels, and to gain an even greater appreciation of Steinbeck's genius. The book's underlying message about class inequality resonates strongly today.
Without a doubt, Colin Firth's evocative, impactful read elevated this Audible offering well above the average book.
Simply, his professional experience brings nuance and power to every paragraph.
