What disappointed you about Winesburg, Ohio?
The actors in this book are not good. The accents sounded off, with one in particular who sounded more like a New England fisherman than an Ohio resident. The pace is ponderous and read with clarity but no inflection or emotion. It sounded like an experiment for fledgling voice actors to enunciate each word, each syllable as perfectly as possible. The calliope sounding music between stories made this entire thing cringe-worthy. Maybe if the audience had been expected to be a young grammar school class, this would be acceptable.
What did you like best about this story?
The story was fine, often considered a classic, but somewhat dated, a quality with which real classics aren't plagued.
How could the performance have been better?
It would be hard to have it get any worse.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
None that occur to me.
Any additional comments?
Save your money.
