Very worthwhile for Kafka fans

A very interesting set of recordings. Once I'd got used to Lotte Lenya's (Rosa Klebbe in 'From Russia with Love') accent (which didn't take long), this was a delight. She gives a very impassioned rendering of the stories and the the musical backing adds to the intensity of the reading, though it would have been fine without it.

She was an inspired choice to narrate. I wonder if there are any other recordings in the archives?

Doesnt work

Would you try another book written by Franz Kafka or narrated by Lotte Lenya?

Yes...if the was no music score running behind the narration....


Would you recommend The Best of Franz Kafka's Short Stories to your friends? Why or why not?

Just couldn't separate the narration and music.


Did Lotte Lenya do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Lotte's slavic pronunciation of English was the final nail in the coffin...


Any additional comments?

...I reckon this is the one exception to the rule that audiobooks are the 'stereo' to the physical books 'mono'....
