Publisher's Summary

The complete, unabridged audiobook of Gormenghast .

Enter the world of Gormenghast...the vast crumbling castle to which the seventy-seventh Earl, Titus Groan, is Lord and heir. Gothic labyrinth of roofs and turrets, cloisters and corridors, stairwells and dungeons, it is also the cobwebbed kingdom of Byzantine government and age-old rituals, a world primed to implode beneath the weight of centuries of intrigue, treachery, manipulation and murder.

Gormenghast is more than a sequel to Titus Groan - it is an enrichment and deepening of that book. The fertility of incident, character and rich atmosphere combine in a tour de force that ranks as one of the twentieth century's most remarkable feats of imaginative writing.

Gormengast

I enjoy this more than Titus Groan. The story moves quickly with out loosing any of the beautiful descriptive poetry of the first.

I loved the original. this felt like a long haul

Narrator is great. 1st book in the series is better. a haul to finish, maybe a more pleasurable read since its so descriptive and nicely worded, you kind of.miss that with narration.

Great narration

Really enjoyed this book, quite a different style to Titus Groan. I particularly love this narration, Saul Reichlin does a great job of bringing the characters alive with all the different voices.
