As great as it ought to be

What made the experience of listening to The Master and Margarita (Dramatized) the most enjoyable?

For the same reason I've read the book so many times - because it's a fabulous story, delivered here with such enthusiasm and gusto that the characters come to life the moment they open their mouths.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

You don't have a choice - it draws you in immediately!

Too confusing as an audiobook

The book may have been hard to turn into a play in the first place, but this particular cast is a motley crew of accents, and casts a female actor in a male role, which makes the audio-only version of the play of the book incredibly difficult to follow.

Wonderful

It was a very energetic performance filled with plenty of nuance and humour. I'm a fan of the book, and I thoroughly enjoyed this little gem :)

Expertly summarised and acted with gusto!

it is not easy to transform such a multi layered classic novel which move with devilish ease from the first to ...erm the 5th dimension and back again but this team did it. I laughed, I cried and I was all ears listening to them acting and reciting my favourite novel, well done and thank you.

A madcap and surreal adventure

No idea what to expect from this, as needed to know the story before seeing a ballet based on the book. What a strange story, but very enjoyable!
