This adaptation is very good and gives plenty of roundness to the character of Dantes (who can seem a little tow dimensional in some versions). The narrator is excellent.
Nice synopsis of a very, very long book. Great narration and characterization. It really held my interest. I listened to it in a single sitting.
Entertaining and fast moving.
I would like to listen to some of Tim Pigott-Smith’s other performances.
I know this book is supposed to be a classic, but having read it for the first time I dont understand why. Maybe in its time it brought something new to the art of storytelling, I just dont know, but it seemed like a really bad soap opera.
