Would you listen to These Precious Hours again? Why?
Yes. The reading is effective, and the stories about loss and recovery have a poignant resonance. Of course, they are speical to me since I created them.
What was one of the most memorable moments of These Precious Hours?
I like them all, but my favorite is the first, "These Precious Hours," which gives the book it's title. It captures Galway, Ireland, and the grief of someone on the road coming to terms with loss in a musical, colorful setting. "The Wife and the Monk" is a unique story, unlike anything I have written before.
Have you listened to any of Alex Hyde-White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have seen him in films. He gives a straightforward but evocative reading that lets the characters breathe and allows the stories to carry themselves, working on the imagination of the listener. I don't think a narrator should "act" when doing an audiobook. Alex Hyde-White suggets the characters.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I could have.
Any additional comments?
It is, if I may say so, a fine combination of evocative stories, often lyrical prose, and a thoughful, understated but effective reader.
