(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?
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
