Henry James fan ,

The Ambassadors

James' style is complex and requires a very clear, clean audio recording. The reader of this extraordinary masterpiece is almost unintelligible. His accent is affected to the point of absurdity and inexplicably inconsistent. In addition, it sounds as though he has an ice cube in his mouth. Dreadful production and a waste of money.
