Timely and timeless

This classic is worth revisiting. Narrator is clear, appreciates the subtly of Lewis' prose. Thoroughly enjoyable!

Book is great, narration is awful.

I read Main Street years ago and thought it was time to reacquaint myself with the story. The book is great, but this narrator was awful. No subtlety, weird and inconsistent accents, makes Carol sound like a helpless sap, and pronounces the name Bea, bee-ah. Just terrible. I ended up buying another version because I couldn't stand it.

Lost on me

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I have no idea,as I didn't even understand what it was about in the first place.

What was most disappointing about Sinclair Lewis’s story?

Everything.Especially not knowing what year it was set in.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lloyd James?

It would not matter.

What character would you cut from Main Street?

All of them.

Any additional comments?

No.
