    "Not bad"

    The story itself is quite nice and well written, if slightly dated. Or perhaps you need to be younger to appreciate the story and ignore the fact that a lot of it has become cliche ("A mysterious island, shrouded in fear, evil, and darkness" etc.)

    As for the narrator, I must say I didn't care for his performance. It's not that he does anything "wrong": his voice is pleasant, his diction is flawless. But to my taste it was overacted. Mr. Harrison simply expresses too much emotion in his narration. As always, this is a matter of taste, but that's what I thought.

    All in all, well worth getting, especially for this price.

    "One of the best short stories - ever!"

    I remember reading this many years ago. Always curious to see if perceptions change over 35+ years, I gave this one another try. I can report here that it is as good now as then!

    Harrison does a good job narrating the story, so don't let the new format put you off.

    For the price, you can't go wrong having this in your library.

    Story
    "A most thrilling classic masterpiece!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Most Dangerous Game to be better than the print version?

    Hummm. No. Just as good.


    What other book might you compare The Most Dangerous Game to and why?

    This is vintage perfection written for the discerning mind. Publisher's Weekly probably would reject it as "old fashioned" because it doesn't begin with a chase scene, or something. You want new fashion? Go see Star Trek. You want perfection like Doyle, Wells, Kipling, or Verne, this is your ticket to satisfaction! It will knock your socks off and make your head spin like no other story.


    What about B. J. Harrison’s performance did you like?

    Excellent. None better.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    ...in the tree.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth every cent, every minute devoted.

    BJ Harrison started off a little snarky but eased into the story without distraction. His characters were distinct and engagingly performed.
