if you want to understand and enjoy FW this is a must have.
FW is the craziest deepest and funniest book ever written....satirical in. a warm Irish way......totally existential and so human.
without this audio version you'll struggle to follow the book....enjoy!
An easier read when listened to than read without listening. C'est la vie! 終わり。Sixteen five one nine.
I've been a long time James Joyce fan but always felt too intimidated to attempt 'The Wake'. When I saw the audio version on Audible I decided to listen and decide whether I wanted to attempt the full book. And I do! The well acted reading is illuminating and I was able to enjoy the rhythms and musicality of the words as I believe Joyce intended. I would recommend this audio book to any one who lives poetry or James Joyce. My only criticism of the recording would be the 'sign off' at the end, this makes it difficult to skip back to the beginning straight after listening and preserve the circular nature of the novel. Well worth a listen though!
