Publisher's Summary

Professor Timofey Pnin ist ein Ritter der traurigen Gestalt. Der Exilrusse lehrt Literatur an einem amerikanischen Provinzcollege und versucht, sich in der neuen Heimat zurechtzufinden. Weder versteht er die Feinheiten der englischen Sprache, noch ist er in der Lage, die gesellschaftlichen Codes des American Way of Life zu entschlüsseln. Überängstlich und zwanghaft, in seiner Tapsigkeit dabei anrührend, taumelt Pnin von einem Missgeschick zum nächsten. Doch trotz aller Demütigungen, die er sich nicht zuletzt selbst beifügt, schafft er es, seine Würde durch alle Widernisse zu retten.

Its in German

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Having it read in English. if the title on a book originally written in English reads "Pnin, unabridged" I assume it is in English. I'd never have downloaded it in German.

Any additional comments?

Yes, if an English-language book is being read in another language, please make that very clear up front!
