  • A Confederacy of Dunces

  • By: John Kennedy Toole
  • Narrated by: Barrett Whitener
  • Length: 13 hrs and 32 mins
  • Unabridged

The hero of John Kennedy Toole's incomparable, Pulitzer Prize-winning comic classic is one Ignatius J. Reilly, "huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter". His story bursts with wholly original characters, denizens of New Orleans' lower depths, incredibly true-to-life dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventures.

I've read the book four times. Didn't expect to find the audiobook as funny/vivid/dimensional but I was wrong. It is a PERFECT narration of a masterpiece.

Albert Camus' The Stranger is one of the most widely read novels in the world, with millions of copies sold. It stands as perhaps the greatest existentialist tale ever conceived, and is certainly one of the most important and influential books ever produced. Now, for the first time, this revered masterpiece is available as an unabridged audio production.

Superb Narration

A narrator is so important that he or she can make a bad book or break a good book.

In this case, a great book is done even more justice by the narration. Highly recommended.
