Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would not recommend this audiobook to a friend. The narrator's 'pretend' voices/accents just grated. Everything sounded the same, and everything sounded dull.
If you’ve listened to books by Louis De Bernieres before, how does this one compare?
This was my first Louis de Bernieres book, read or listened to. I'd be willing to give another book by the same author a try, because it may well be that it was the narration that was dull, not the prose.
What didn’t you like about Christopher Kay’s performance?
It made me want to fall asleep. I don't know if it was because he was trying to do different voices for different characters, or because he was attempting a Greek/Turkish/Mediterranean accent, but I found listening dull.
Was Birds Without Wings worth the listening time?
Any additional comments?
I tried over and over to get into it but gave up in the end. I really don't like doing that because usually if one perseveres the book grabs your interest and I don't like wasting a credit on a book I don't finish; I feel I haven't had my money's worth. Maybe this would be a better book if read by a different narrator, or if I read the actual book myself.
