great drama, top narration, well performed
what else can I say about this great BBC drama is nothing but pure joy
Slightly disturbing tale. Although a good dramatisation, I didn't enjoy the story. The characters were interesting and the performance certainly portrayed them extremely well. The music added to the disturbing and haunting atmosphere. If you enjoy this book or style/genre , then you'll like this drama. But it wasn't for me.
I'm normally a bit wary of radio adaptations as they can be very clunky, but this one brings great drama and atmosphere to the story. An excellent cast, augmented by evocative sound effects and music, and a script which captures the heart of this huge novel in just under three hours. Highly recommended.
This is a well acted, and very entertaining adaptation of the book. I enjoyed it a lot.
Any additional comments?
The greatest story ever told, told by the greatest storytellers in the business. BBC drama bring to life the classic tale of madman meeting whale in this epic addition to their drama collection. I would recommend this book to young and old, it's exciting and BBC drama studios did it justice, with whale sounds and eery music injected throughout the listen to add to the atmosphere.
This magnificent story is very well told here, well cast and nicely acted. It manages to economically capture the atmosphere of the original book whilst moving the plot along briskly. The sound quality could be better but overall this is a very entertaining listen, and I have no hesitation in recommending it.
