DHL would weep
on 11 October 2013
It is impossible to imagine a more unsuitable reader for this classic. I suffered the first CD in the hope that it might improve but it did not and the gabble went on and on. To be told that it had finished was an unnecessary intrusion in the narrative.
It would have been better red by a man who had some understanding of DHL's observation, insight and understanding of human emotions and relationships. Because of the reader's accent, there was no feeling for the people and landscape of the part of the country in which it is set.
Sadly, I have impaired vision and am dependent on listening and it was so sad to hear a favourite book and writer so unappreciated and lacking in the depth which makes DHL so great a writer.
