I'm normally a bit wary of radio adaptations as they can be very clunky, but this one brings great drama and atmosphere to the story. An excellent cast, augmented by evocative sound effects and music, and a script which captures the heart of this huge novel in just under three hours. Highly recommended.
My perfect night in: Cup of tea, all my wonderful audible books and dramas and a comfortable seat on top of my bed. Nuf sed'
The greatest story ever told, told by the greatest storytellers in the business. BBC drama bring to life the classic tale of madman meeting whale in this epic addition to their drama collection. I would recommend this book to young and old, it's exciting and BBC drama studios did it justice, with whale sounds and eery music injected throughout the listen to add to the atmosphere.
This magnificent story is very well told here, well cast and nicely acted. It manages to economically capture the atmosphere of the original book whilst moving the plot along briskly. The sound quality could be better but overall this is a very entertaining listen, and I have no hesitation in recommending it.
