THE GREAT GATSBY

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Frank Muller

Classics • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1925

Readers familiar with Fitzgerald’s novel of the Jazz Age and those who have never read it will both benefit from Frank Muller’s wonderful narration. Muller brings the classic’s rhythms to life, letting us hear the differences in class or regional origins in just a few words that might be missed on the silent page. What’s more, the fundamental dishonesty of Gatsby’s self-creation comes through in his repetition of stock phrases. Muller’s delivery accents the often missed poetic qualities of Fitzgerald’s prose. One can hear the rhythmic cadences in each phrase, and even how the vowels in individual descriptive passages resonate with one another. This is what an audiobook should be. G.T.B.
