Publisher's Summary

Having inspired a classic film and Broadway play, The Caine Mutiny is Herman Wouk's boldly dramatic, brilliantly entertaining novel of life—and mutiny—on a Navy warship in the Pacific theater. It was immediately embraced upon its original publication as one of the first serious works of American fiction to grapple with the moral complexities and the human consequences of the Second World War. In the intervening half century, this gripping story has become a perennial favorite, selling millions throughout the world, and claiming the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

    "Keeps you interested"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really enjoyed The Caine Mutiny. I didn't know anything about the book or the movie before listening to this audiobook. I was a little surprised that the mutiny really only took up about 15 minutes of the 25 hour audiobook. The book builds up the mutiny, has it occur for 15 minutes, then the trial takes up a few hours, then it is back to seeing how the remaining characters' lives wrap up.

    It was an enjoyable listen, but I thought it would be a little more action-packed than it was.

    Story
    "Great book with a few shameful production lapses"
    What did you love best about The Caine Mutiny?

    The vivid evocation of the life of a World War II sailor, and the tension about what would become of the crew with their crazy captain.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Caine Mutiny?

    The Great Strawberry Investigation.


    What about Kevin Pariseau’s performance did you like?

    His voice acting was very good and helped one keep track of the many characters. I didn't always love his basic narration, though, which didn't vary naturally with the meaning of the text.


    Any additional comments?

    There are several times when the recording is disrupted -- jumps suddenly very quiet for a few seconds, say. This should have been caught and corrected during production! I know it's a long book, but there's no reason for no quality control. There are even some glaring misread words ("captain" for "cabin" for example) that apparently nobody caught. Was distracting.

    "A classic with powerful story"

    Narrator added great depth to the story. Truly enjoyable. Much more informative than the movie.

    "Slow moving at times, but overall a good story"

    It took me a while to really get into this novel, but by the end, I had an appreciation for Wouk's ability to make me look at not only the events of the story in a different light, but WWII as well.

    "Best Audible Book I've "read""
    What made the experience of listening to The Caine Mutiny the most enjoyable?

    The book was outstanding and the performance was the best I've experienced.


    What does Kevin Pariseau bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It sounded as if several actors were involved in the performance. The dialogue was very easy to follow as the voicing was different for each character.

    "Another good WWII story"

    I have a long commute so I like longer books and Wouk makes the story last without going boring. Characters are believable if not somewhat crazy at times.
