Sintesi dell'editore

In his first published work in prose, James Joyce paints vivid portraits of the people of Dublin, his city of birth, in a collection of stories whose larger purpose, he said, was to depict a "moral history of Ireland". From the first story, in which a young boy encounters death, to the haunting final story involving the middle-aged Gabriel, the book gives an unflinching and realistic portrayal of "dear, dirty Dublin" in the early 20th-century. This brilliant study is by turns bawdy and witty, but always darkened by a paralysis of spirit and emotions.

Sometimes Davidson works, sometimes not

As I've said elsewhere, Frederick Davidson is an acquired taste. Frederick Davidson doing "Irish" is beyond my capabilities at the moment. It's a spirited reading, as his usually are, but there are better readings of this book available on Audible. (The one by Jim Norton is one; the one that uses a different Irish author or actor for each story is another.)

Dubliners - Big disapointment

I was hugely disappointed by this. The narrator sounded like he just wanted to get through it. He didn't seem to put any feeling into it. If I had been able to sample it beforehand I would definitely not have bought it. It was a waste of money, for me anyway. I have downloaded one or two other books from Audible and they have been fine. I'm downloading one right now. .I think there is a more expensive audio book of Dubliners. I wish I'd bought it, but then that's taking a chance too! However, it's just my opinion.
