Kill all or be killed.

Would you listen to The Weird Circle again? Why?

I might, this was an interesting listen.

Would you recommend The Weird Circle to your friends? Why or why not?

This story is about a Corsican family Ginerva and her father who move to France after Ginerva's mother is killed by the Porter family. Her father then kills all the Porters. <br/><br/>This story is not De Maupassant's story but Honore Balzac's. I checked on Wikipedia. <br/><br/>Ginerva grows up and falls in love with a Napoleonic soldier hiding in her art teacher's attic. He just happens to be the last Porter in his family alive. <br/><br/>Her father finds out and feels that if Ginerva marries him, he must kill them both to be true to his oath of the vendetta.<br/> <br/>Listen to see what happens next...

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

This was a radio play, so several actors played parts including a landlady that sounded like Bette Davis. <br/><br/>Well done acting.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The end. All I can say.

SAD & CREEPY

Another old Hollywood creeper for those cold winter nights.

This one is rather sad :( and dramatic.
