Where does The Pearl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
In my top 5.
What other book might you compare The Pearl to and why?
Comparable to "Of Mice and Men" in length... but faster, more intense, more gripping.
What about Hector Elizondo’s performance did you like?
Perfect voice & narration for this story -- low and under-produced, yet mysterious, quick, and forceful... great complement to The Pearl.
Any additional comments?
I generally like to get a lot of audio hours for my credit... so I wasn't sure it'd be worth it to purchase a book that was 2 hours and change. I was wrong. Gripping book... listens much like a thriller. Classic Steinbeck. The same way "East of Eden" navigates the unspoken rhythms of brothers and fathers, "The Pearl" spotlights the same between husbands and wives... though in a more succinct, more frenetic manner. Riveting listen.

Really sad and depressing. Good story though. I would recommend to people who don't mind a sad story.
