"Crome Yellow, Huxley's first novel, is famous for its technique, ideas, and acute psychological descriptions." (The Times, London)
"Robert Whitfield's unabridged reading of Huxley's first novel is a triumph of one man's vocal capacities....Whitfield's vocal acrobatics in portraying the cast of characters assembled at an English country estate for a summer vacation in the 1920's makes for dazzling aural entertainment. Otherwise fatuous goings-on become intriguing shenanigans, and the characters' psychological portraits are rendered accurately through the unique voices Whitfield assigns them." (AudioFile)
"Robert Whitfield does it full justice and proves that he is now one of the best narrators in the business." (Library Journal)
Thoroughly enjoyable! The characters, the mark of the time on thought and life, depicted, now playful, now melancholic? but always with full colour, honesty and depth? and with such delightfully vivacious narration, it was a joy.
"Makes a change"
Witty, humerous and sharp edged. The kind of thing that benefits from being read aloud particularly by a fast reader like me, as it made pay proper attention to all the lovely lines
