Würden Sie For Real noch mal anhören? Warum?
I am sure I will listen to this book again and again. It's is a lovely audio version of a lovely book. The book has changing points of view, and in the same way the audiobook has two narrators. Toby, a young man with a wild combination of certainty and uncertainty, Laurie, older and more jaded, with his emotions locked away but so open, physically. The alternating voices felt very real in print, but even more so here.
Haben Sie vorher schon ein Hörbuch mit John Hartley and Paul Berton gehört? Wie würden Sie beide vergleichen?
This was my first time with these narrators, but I think they did a marvellous job. Laurie's narrator has a lovely RP accent (and also does a passable Aussie accent). He's slightly melodramatic, and manages to convey Laurie's jaded, slightly cynical and "given up hope of more in life" attitude very well. Toby's narrator is clearly younger, and combines wide eyed marvel, late teenage passion and slightly gleeful cruelty very nicely. It's more than just "read," but done with conviction and emotion, and it really works. Which is what I liked most--how the narrators drag me in, emotionally. It does feel real. They bring this wonderful story to life and give it flesh.
