Expectations should be great when listening to a classic like A TALE OF TWO CITIES. Narrator Simon Callow has the expected British accent, a multitude of inflections for the many different characters, and smooth transitions from dramatic reading to scene-setting narrative. But the production quality of this work falls short. Too often a deep breath preceding a passage, or a portion that's recorded with the volume too low, takes away from Callow's obvious enthusiasm for what must be a fun challenge to any professional reader. Callow's introduction to the work, it should be noted, is fascinating. However, greater attention to the production details could have made this audiobook far better.
