"And his armour fell rattling around him..."
There is surely no need to give my opinion of the story here so I'll only mention the narration.
I was not completely satisfied by the style of the reading for this audio book when it started but, after time, I found it grew on me. There is a rhythm to it that the narrator's lack of inflection lets through. The text itself and the repetitions within it carried me along at a comfortable pace and I soon found myself muttering along as familiar phrases were repeated.
Details stayed with me long after the book had ended and I can still recall substantial portions now as I write this several months after listening. They play back in John Lescault's distinctive voice and the images they conjure remain as vivid.
In conclusion, an unsettling start turned into a memorable experience. Pretty soon I'll be set to listen to the whole lot again.
