I bought this short story because it was mentioned in a writing course. I get that this is supposed to be an epiphany (or lack thereof) tale, but I felt like the point could have been reached with considerable fewer words and considerable more interesting characters. I struggled to finish it, then found that the one minute summation in my writing course was more than adequate to tell this story. Disappointing.

Occasionally one wonders whether there has been any editorial input applied in the choice of some voices for audiobooks. David Thorn - no doubt convincing in Hammer Horror or perhaps on a bar stool in the Rue de Rivoli is almost unbearable in this reading. The irritating, hammy, sing song tone, almost unintelligible, and used without any regard to sense or tone, meant I had to abandon the Aspern Papers within the first few chapters. Though in his impersonation of the 'ladies" in the novel gave some light relief, he is almost impossible to listen to such that I had to abandon the book.
