Der Text ist fast gänzlich als innerer Monolog gestaltet, was als Neuheit in der deutschsprachigen Literaturgeschichte gewürdigt wird; er stellt die Ängste, Obsessionen und Neurosen eines jungen Leutnants der k.u.k. Armee aus der Innenperspektive des Protagonisten dar.More

A classic Viennese novel
Totally. I read it, I listened to it and I will do it again.
Leutnant Gustl, he's pretty much the only character
Leutnant Gustl is a classic and always great listening to in a spare hour. Following Leutnant Gustl through one night in Vienna with all his fin de siècle problems that seem sheer ridiculous now is a pleasure. Without even realising you find yourself in the centre of the story after only a few minutes of listening and before you know it you you've come to the end.
I gave only 4 stars for the performance as I strongly believe this book should have been narrated by someone with a Viennese accent. This would make the listener feel even closer to the story.
