Publisher's Summary

"White Nights" is the third major Dostoyevsky short story everyone should read or listen to, along with "A Faint Heart" and "The Christmas Tree and Wedding". The story contains a series of Winesburg, Ohio-like moments: a woman and man meet accidentally on the First Night; proceed to meet again on the Second and Third, almost fall in love, and at the last minute the former lover of the woman returns to take her away. But the point is that the man had a moment, a glorious moment when, for the first time in his life, he had something special. Was that enough? That is the question the author leaves us with.

Terrible narrator

Worst narrator ever.... seriously. Ever! Don’t buy this, it’s seriously painful to listen to. The story is good, of course.

Poor performance

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

This needed a different audio narrator, with an attempt to impart some of the emotions. The words are flatly spoken with odd pauses. Also the audio quality is not on par with high end recordings.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The unnamed narrator of the story, the main character, provides some insight into being young in Europe in an era of change where urban norms are disconnecting people from society.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The audio narrator reads like he has no care at all for the story, with odd pacing and no proper emphasis. As if he is not even paying attention to the story.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from White Nights?

That is way above my pay grade.

Any additional comments?

Just read the book, this audio version is worthless.

Great book, badly read.

It's a real shame that this wonderful story is barely given the time of day by the reader. He races through it without expression, and virtually without drawing breath. Avoid this version
