    "A good listen"

    I think Jacob's Room is a good listen and the narrator does a great job with a rather difficult novel. Perhaps Jacob's Room was never supposed to be read a loud and that makes this audiobook difficult to listen to. But as an audiobook (and if you know Jacob's Room) there nothing to put a finger on.

    "disappointing"

    I was extremely disappointed not only about the dragging content of the book, but also the annoying narrating (and singing!) voice of the presenter. Wouldn't recommend.
