Two people on a train, one spellbinding story
This is a performance audiobook which shows how it should be done. This excellent Yasmina Reza play, brilliant translated by Christopher Hampton, is utterly engrossing. The premise is simple, two people (one man, one woman) sit in a carriage on a train trip through Europe. The play explores their thoughts as they travel, internal monologues assessing their lives, their loves, and each other. David Suchet's performance is marvelous - he is a performer who knows the power of radio drama, and Harriet Walter is equally enchanting. Buy this audiobook if you want something poignant, funny, and engaging.

Any additional comments?
Here are two exquisitely talented actors, performing a nearly brilliant script. Worth every penny it cost me to buy, and every moment it took to listen to it. Bravo!
