Mr. Mora as a full cast of women

At first it was funny to listen a male voice performing all these female roles. But it works, he's a formidable actor. The one-man narration of the darkest play ever written gives a full experience with all the instructions of the author. Enjoy!

Misleading and Disappointing book

I was expecting a play like the ones I used to listen to growing up on the Caedmon records. This is completely different. It is not performed as a play--with different actors playing different roles. Strangely, all the parts are read by one person. To clarify who is speaking, the actor announces the name of the character before reading what the character said. It is impossible to enjoy this way.

muy bueno

muy bueno, me resultó muy grato.
las variaciones en las entonaciones junto a la descripción de las escenas, hacen muy fácil deducir lo que sucede.

GREAT story, narrator, but...

There is only ONE NARRATOR READING ALL OF THE DIFFERENT PROTAGONISTS' ROLES, and quickly at that. It made me annoyed in a dizzying way. The narrator has a great voice, I reiterate the fact because the quick speed with which he reads might not be his fault, meaning maybe the director might be at fault, or maybe there was a time limit.
