Pieno di descrizioni prolisse; meno male che il narratore, per cortesia, ha il buon senso di leggerle più velocemente. Piuttosto noioso.

Per i miei gusti, Wilde fa troppa filosofia in questo romanzo; le descrizioni sono troppo verbose. Se avessi saputo, avrei preferito andare dal dentista piuttosto che ascoltare capitolo 11. Buona narrazione però.

And what a holiday it was! Battiston is really a great narrator. I think this is the eighth Maigret I've listened to from the Emons catalog.

I'm a fan of Simenon, but this one drags on. The endless rambling of a crazy person was probably his intention, but it risks becoming boring. Reminded me a little of The Kreutzer Sonata. Narration is very good if you're a student of the language.

Great, timeless story. Not the best narration. Too many sentences treated like turning points in the plot. Voice inflections aren't consistent so it's not always clear who's speaking in a conversation between characters. I couldn't wait to finish so I wouldn't have to hear him say "Edward Hhhhyyyyde" one more time.

Narration is very good and ideal for a student of the language. Great novel which you probably won't find on the #metoo reading list.

Finora il mio Simenon preferito e ne ho letti molti. If you're a student of the Italian language, this is a good story with excellent narration.

Finora il mio Maigret preferito. Ne ho letto o ascoltato sette. Battiston fa un bel lavoro come al solito.
