Editor reviews

In the third and final installment of the Gormenghast series, Titus makes good on his desire to flee his home and see the world outside of the castle walls. Veteran actor Rubert Degas uses his full arsenal of vocal talents to bring to life this fantasy classic. With an intense delivery, Degas takes listeners away from Gormenghast to the dangers of the outside, where Titus finds evil policemen, seedy outcasts, and enough horrendous encounters to make him question whether he should have ever left home at all.

Summary

Titus Groan has fled the rambling, ruined and ruinous castle of Gormenghast, desperate for a view of the world beyond. But he wasn’t prepared for this! Satellites, death-rays, sinister policemen and underworld outcasts live in a nightmarish contemporary city that feels like something by Wells, Burroughs or Philip K. Dick. Threatened and lost, he begins to miss the home he left; but surely he won’t be tempted back?

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Annoying voices

A great and unusual story let down by some very annoying and occasionally difficult to understand voices put on unnecessarily by the narrator.
