Came up as 1984 and nothing about being in French until after purchase. Very disappointed.
"Excellent narration, great story, not easy French."
I've read a number of novels in French but it's not my native language. I thought this would be a good first French audiobook because of the relatively simple story. I misremembered how subtle the story really is. I'm alternating listening to a chapter of the English version, and then a chapter of this version. Very enjoyable that way.
The first "hatred" scene. So much scarier than the teenage me remembered--especially after listening to some WWII history, including the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.
Please offer more classics in French--English-language as well as French literature. As of now the choice is pretty limited, but my guess French and Spanish are the two most popular second languages (acquired, at least) for Anglophones.
I read this book years ago. Just now listened to the narration and found it extraordinary. It's apropos to current events.
"Un grand roman qui vieillit assez bien."
Excellente lecture. Le lecteur réussit à nous faire entrer dans la tête de Smith. L'auteur réussi bien à nous démontrer l'adéquation entre totalitarisme (extrémisme) et abruptissement.
