Ham and more ham

1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 09-01-12

Occasionally one wonders whether there has been any editorial input applied in the choice of some voices for audiobooks. David Thorn - no doubt convincing in Hammer Horror or perhaps on a bar stool in the Rue de Rivoli is almost unbearable in this reading. The irritating, hammy, sing song tone, almost unintelligible, and used without any regard to sense or tone, meant I had to abandon the Aspern Papers within the first few chapters. Though in his impersonation of the 'ladies" in the novel gave some light relief, he is almost impossible to listen to such that I had to abandon the book.
