THE DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE & THE YELLOW WALLPAPER

THE DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE & THE YELLOW WALLPAPER

by Robert Louis Stevenson, Charlotte Perkins Gilman | Read by Derek Perkins, Alison Larkin

Alison Larkin Presents | Unabridged
Classics

A relatively quick listen, this audiobook takes the listener into the tortured minds of two famous literary narrators. Derek Perkins narrates Stevenson's famous novella. He renders the excitement of the mystery of Mr. Hyde and gives voice to a range of characters from the servant Poole to the lawyer Utterson.

FEAR AND TREMBLING

FEAR AND TREMBLING

by Soren Kierkegaard | Read by Mark Meadows

Naxos AudioBooks | Unabridged

In this version of Kierkegaard's masterpiece, Meadows uses good pacing to give the listener an intricate treatment of the biblical story of Isaac's near sacrifice by his father, Abraham, and what this story may mean in the realm of faith in a higher...

by Mikhail Lermontov, J.H. Wisdom [Trans.], Marr Murray [Trans.] | Read by Nicholas Boulton

by | Read by David Rintoul and a Full Cast

Ukemi Productions | Unabridged
Classics

Reading Plato on the page, we tend to forget that the DIALOGUES were just that, works designed to be read aloud in an age when if you wanted a copy of a book, you had to have it made. David Rintoul, as Socrates, and an able supporting cast perform these pieces as theater, with real people discussing issues that concern them. Particularly in the APOLOGIA, Socrates's speeches...
