This review is from: The Odyssey (Audio CD)
This is a real delight; the text is clear without sounding trivial, and Sir Ian reads with great energy and conviction.
My only concern - and I hesitate to say this about one of our greatest actors - is that he tends to let his voice fade away before the end of the last word in a phrase or sentence: so 'He was astonished' becomes 'He was astoni'. Only once or twice has this actually stopped me from understanding the text - you usually get enough of the word to guess - but I find it distracting, as if you can never quite relax into the experience, because you are always listening out for the next vanishing syllable.
I would still heartily recommend the CDs, but I would be interested to know if anyone else finds this a problem.
