…”has not the count just told us that all human wisdom is summed up in two words? Wait and hope.”
I listened to the Librivox recording of this book last December. Last week, I saw that I could get it on Audible for only $2.99, if I purchased the kindle book was well. I was tempted to listen to a professional recording of the book. Boy, was that a mistake! Not because the recording is not good, but because this book is so gripping that it sucks you in, even when you know how it is going to play out. It exercises a fascination exactly of the nature that it tells us its protagonist exercises over everyone who meets him.
Now I can’t do anything but read/listen this book to the end again. Screw you audible! (Or should I say thanks?)
