Greene's tale brought vividly to life
The cast are excellent, bringing this story to life with wit and skill. Greene's story of Vienna's ugly black market trading is carefully recreated by the cast, the soundtrack and the sound effects used, and it works well - it's entertaining and engrossing. Kelsey Grammer gives a particularly praise-worthy performance as Holly Martins.

This is NOT Greene's The Third Man
What disappointed you about The Third Man (Dramatized)?
Rather then performing Graham Greene's brilliant play about 1945-46 war-ravaged Vienna, the theater troop change Greene's words, which changes the deep meaning of Greene's sophisticated characters. Much better to buy the original movie and see what Greene originally wrote as a movie.
What could Graham Greene have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Been alive to veto this travesty of his work.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?
Someone faithful to the writer's writing.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Third Man (Dramatized)?
Cut this whole performance and saved my money for the original movie.
Any additional comments?
I listen to my shelf of Greene audiobooks frequently – all his great novels – but this audiobook is not NOT the spirit or words of Greene's screenplay – so it sits unused as my only bad purchase from Audible. (Thank you Audible for offering this "review" function on your site.)
