BookLender review by Dutch on 2013-10-07 17:33:14

Returning to this short novel 40 years after first reading it, it now seems stilted and pretentious. This is only made worse much, much worse by the abosolutely awful, talentless narrator, Jeff Woodman. The books translation may also have been poor, but Woodman makes it almost unlistenable. Listening to this made me wonder why I ever thought Herman Hesse was cool. But I should really blame BBC Audio, of all people!, for this mess.
