Not quite right,
This review is from: Four Quartets (Audio CD)
I suppose I made the assumption that a good actor with screen presence could do justice to Eliot's great work. I was wrong. Fiennes reads this as if he is doing so for the first time, without any run through or rehearsal. It is read too slowly in some places and too quickly in others. It often lacks any emotion, especially when reading a question, of which there are a few in the first quartet. I much prefer Ted Hughes's reading, sadly not available on CD or as a download.
