Brilliantly constructed book, very well read

Would you consider the audio edition of The Overlook to be better than the print version?

Not necessarily better. It doesn't matter. The reading is strong enough to convey a great story.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot is magnificently paced, and goes to the heart of its big themes.


Have you listened to any of Michael Brandon’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't recall hearing other Brandon performances. This one is well judged and doesn't draw too much attention to itself. In short, a good professional job.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I'm too busy to read anything at one sitting, but this recording helps the listener keep the thread of the story in mind.


Any additional comments?

This fine recording is billed as "abridged", but I don't think it is. If anything is missing, it's not very much.
