A bird of good omen is murdered. A fickle crew is punished by supernatural, spectral beings. A skeletal ship is sighted moving against the wind and tide. The figure of Death along with a singular, gruesome companion man the fiendish craft. And as they draw closer, it becomes clear that the two play at dice for the soul of the ancient mariner. The result is nothing short of cataclysmic.

But some lines repeat and I don't know if that's because the narrator repeated them, the editor didn't join up separate recording sections well, OR they are just repeated in the original work and I didn't realise.
"A classic well read"
I was impressed with the narrator and really appreciate his work on what could have been a difficult piece. "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" is an acquired taste, but this was so well presented, I must give it an excellent review. I've listened to it twice in the last couple of days and will listen to it again shortly. I am really pleased with this work and its presentation.
It's Coleridge and the reader read with emotion. One of the best readings I have heard.
