(P)1997 by Blackstone Audiobooks
I am a Huge fan of H.G. Wells works. The story is interesting...BUT, The narrator of this book is so dull and monotonous, I could not finish it. He literally kept putting me to sleep.
Listen to the sample before buying.
"When the Sleeper Awakes - a lost opportunity"
As a fan of HG Wells, I looked forward to hearing "When the Sleeper Awakes" with some enthusiasm. I had not heard Frederick Davidson read any other titles before this book. The choice of Davidson for "The Sleeper" was, in my opinion, a mistake. I believe that it is possible that his accent and phrasing may be suitable for other genres but, in this case, an opportunity has been lost. I found myself listening to Davidson's interpretation with increasing distraction and occasional annoyance. Can another reader not be found for this excellent book?
