I would definitely want to listen to Moby Dick again. It is such a multi-layered and well-written novel.
Of course, the novel revolves around the events leading up to and including the encounter with Moby Dick. Those events provide the most memorable moments of the novel.
Mark Nelson's understated performance is very appropriate to the whalemen depicted in the novel. His use of various voices for the different characters is never overly theatrical.
Due to the length and depth of this novel it is best to read it a few chapters at a time. Its relatively short chapters make this book very much suited to the audio format.
Mansfield Park is full of so many delightful characters that a second listening would certainly be worthwhile. The performance by Frances Barber is superb.
The story takes many interesting and unforeseen turns.
Frances Barber was definitely up to the challenge of differentiating so many important characters making each one come alive to the listener.
I found myself amused by Jane Austen's frequent dashes of irony.
Although several performances of this work are available through Audible, this one would have to rank among the best.
