A master piece spoiled by the narrator.

Emma is a wonderful novel and too well known to describe but the American narrater has slightly slurry diction which is off putting.

Unfortunately the American woman reader has a cadence that makes it difficult to pay attention to the meaning of the sentences. Would advise to wait until it is redone with another reader

Wonderfully read in a great grungy American voice, a father and young son wander the continent of America scavenging for food and shelter in a landscape where nothing can grow and the sun cannot shine and if they meet a fellow human he might well try to eat them. The end of the world is happening. The skill of this book is that you continue to listen.

Fathers and Sons

Turgenev's Fathers and Sons is wonderfully read by Walter Zimmerman. This adds greatly to the pleasure of reading this short book about the relationship between two sons and their fathers and the inevitable fault lines between them.

Although Psmith Journalist is a terrific novel, the recording of it is too muffled to make easy listening. I gave up
