Perfect actor for the parts
The story telling through letters and diary entries allowed the reader to experience the confusion of the character by being in their head and not just by observance. I thought the the character's denial of old world superstitions because of their modern day living rang true and added to the suspense.
I really enjoyed the beginning of the book where the reader is slowly taking a ride with the character into the heart of darkness.
There was a shipwreck by a Russian vessel that fit within the story much like folklore yet it was a real scene within the story. It worked as its own vignette and was very engaging and spooky.
I have a tendency to enjoy one voice reading all parts. This actor did not stereotype the female voice by talking squeaky or shrill. All parts were thoughtfully read and the American voice was comically appropriate. I would definately listen to this actor read again
