probably Melville’s second best book but one of the worst readings I have ever …

(0,5 Sterne)

I love Melville, so much I tried to listen through this horrible reading. The first 3 chapters were great. The reader knows what she is doing. But when the male took over. It’s hard to describe except that it is painful. I know it is free and I love LibriVox. But this turned into punishment. It’s as though the reader randomly decided to put pauses not only into sentences but also in between syllables of words. Imagine a non native speaker trying to read a child’s scrawl. Imagine a dyslexic trying to construe syllables. Imagine a demon inserting random breaks in the tape recording. Well, this is worse. I love Melville. But I will have to reread this book on my own.
