The complete, unabridged audiobook of Gormenghast .
Enter the world of Gormenghast...the vast, crumbling castle to which the 77th Earl, Titus Groan, is Lord and heir. A gothic labyrinth of roofs and turrets, cloisters and corridors, stairwells and dungeons, it is also the cobwebbed kingdom of Byzantine government and age-old rituals, a world primed to implode beneath the weight of centuries of intrigue, treachery, manipulation and murder.
Gormenghast is more than a sequel to Titus Groan - it is an enrichment and deepening of that book. The fertility of incident, character and rich atmosphere combine in a tour de force that ranks as one of the 20th century's most remarkable feats of imaginative writing.

Narrator is great. 1st book in the series is better. a haul to finish, maybe a more pleasurable read since its so descriptive and nicely worded, you kind of.miss that with narration.
