Would you try another book written by Honoré de Balzac or narrated by Frederick Davidson?
I believe that Fred Davidson is dead - which comes as something of a relief to know that he will not be murdering any more good literature by his appalling style of narration
What could Honoré de Balzac have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Another narrator - possibly somebody who understands French - would be a god start!
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I found it quite impossible to listen to this book!
Any additional comments?
I require a refund, please!

Goriot of course
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
no, too dense for that

Great story and the narrator performed well, but the recording itself skipped very often even though the progress bar and timer didn't show any abnormalities
