Although narrator Cathy Dobson, with whom regrettably I am unfamiliar, performs this classic work with a sort of steady, purring cadence that either you will find perfect and soothing or as annoying as the rhythmic groan of an old washing machine determined to slog through just one more load, the story itself is such a beautiful tale of sudden love found in the most unexpected of places, that I suspect that even those who find Ms. Dobson's performance lacking even the tiniest hint of emotional substance, nonetheless will be moved by Lawrence's text. I hope that at very least the latter is the case, for "The Horse Dealer's Daughter" offers one of the truly great artistic insights into the nature of romantic love. And what an ending.
Spoiled by every sentence being given exactly the same musical inflection and rhythm with the last syllable of the sentence drawn out.
It gets irritating. Do the narrators never listen to themselves?
