Loved this book! The portrayal of the central characters of The Oresteia made vivid and accessible in Colm Toibin's beautiful prose - sympathetically narrated by Juliet Stevenson, Charlie Anson and Pippa Nixon.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
It started so well. Early events described through Clytemenstra's monologues. Then it was as if the author did not know where he wanted to go with the plot. It started to meander and it was hard to remain interested in the book. The language is rather childish. Maybe, a novella like testament of Mary might have worked. Shame as it is such a great story.
What will your next listen be?
Rachel Joyce- The Music shop
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Juliet Stevenson was excellent
What character would you cut from House of Names?
A lot of Orestes and all of Leander.
Any additional comments?
It is sad, but I wouldn't try this author again.
