Would you try another book written by John Irving or narrated by John Irving?
I'm sure the book is great, but I cannot finish it due to the dreadful reading. Maybe I'm spoiled having just had Stephen Fry and Neil Gaiman as my last two listens, but John Irving reading is not for me!
Would you recommend John Irving Reads to your friends? Why or why not?
I would most definitely not recommend John Irving Reads as it is extremely difficult to listen to. I had to keep rewinding to clarify points and to try to get into his style. Alas, in the end, I gave up. I could not recommend this book to anyone.
What didn’t you like about John Irving’s performance?
John Irving is a great author and I've thoroughly enjoyed reading his books, but to hear him read has been a real shock. He is monotone, flat, drawls and lacks intonation. All-in-all, a very unlistenable piece of work. I feel quite sure that, but for his name as an author, he would never get work reading books for recording purposes (or any other!!).
Any additional comments?
Hugely disappointed and a waste of my money. Sigh...
