Would you listen to Pierre et Jean again? Why?
No. But for a few of marked, eloquent passages.
What did you like best about this story?
In the end you know which son will have a life adventure and you feel sad but then feel it is best for him and it will all be right.
Have you listened to any of John McDonough’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Johns style fits this story perfectly.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Of course, when the two brothers discover they have different fathers....and all that mess will bring...
Any additional comments?
Stay with the book although early on you look for the escape hatch...you will like it and you might find a piece of yourself in there!
I have yet to come across a Guy de Maupassant short story that I wouldn't give 5 stars (save the narration in certain collections) & his novel, Pierre et Jean, is no exception.
At the start of story, I was briefly worried John McD's slightly gruff sounding narration might be/become irritating, but less than 30 minutes in, that melted away.
I've already downloaded Bel Ami (twice as long w/ same narrator) & can't wait to hit Submit on this review & then Play!
