Subtle and poetic scopophilia of a youth
Tadzio. All credit due to the author's description of the youth which plays with your imagination and helps you paint every subtle action, every emotion of the character. I have seen the film before this and it complements the visual.
I have not. I have to admit that Peter's narration although good, was also quite quiet that I had to raise the volume above the recommended volume level.
I wouldn't want to. This book is powerfully descriptive as the author paints you the scene, the background and the small details. It's a book that you would have to listen again and again to gain more understanding of what the author wanted to convey.
Other than the voice being quiet and that some paragraphs can be quite daunting in their description when you cannot connect with it. This does well to narrate and complement the visuals that one can see through the film.
