    Story
    "Reader makes it impossible to follow."
    Would you try another book from Iris Murdoch and/or Jonathan Cowley?

    I really like Iris Murdoch stories, but I could not finish this one on audible.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator read all parts with the same voice. There's a lot of dialogue in the book that I couldn't follow. As the dialogue went back and forth, with no differentiation in the voices of the characters, I was often lost as to who was saying what.


    Was Henry and Cato worth the listening time?

    I enjoyed the story while I could follow it, but eventually had to quit listening. I will definitely buy the book and read it. I feel like I should get my credit back. This performance was definitely not up to the standards I have come to enjoy in audible books.
