Flawless performance of some short works of a writer who deserves to be ranked with the greatest chroniclers of the 20th century but is not as read as he should be outside of China. And for remarkably cheap to boot!

Dower does it again

Only a late-career academic of Dower's stature could pull off such a lofty project and succeed. An amazing success in tackling a subject that in nearly anyone else's hands would be an unreadable jamming of square pegs into round holes. The narration is not great but only seldom distracting.

Stellar production and reading of a novel that could have become a nightmare listen. A novel one should attempt to relax and laugh with.

Allison is not only a wonderful reader and perfect for the novel but also can pronounce Japanese (!). An all-round excellent production--I hope Audible will continue to record more works of Japanese literature.

Flawless reading of what is now the new standard translation. Completely worth the extra money or a credit for Lydia Davis's translation and Kate Reading's reading.

The narrator sounds like he understands what he's reading and pronounces French quite well and with only a few mistakes (e.g., with names ending -bourg). Highly recommended production!

Fantastic narration job, and I'm glad to see accessible lectures and thought provoking lectures offered through audible. This merits multiple listens and thus the price tag for such a short audiobook. Narration was fantastic!

Remarkable performance by Weinstein

Deftly navigating a series of brilliant close readings to share a lifetime of study, Weinstein demonstrates a mode of critique that dialectically links critical theory with previous styles of critique that are less suspicious of the text. A must-listen for anyone interested in 20th century US literature or culture.

Dion Graham is the best narrator on Audible, as far as I'm concerned. Flawless performance.
