That Old Cape Magic (Unabridged)

by Richard Russo

Open iTunes to Buy


That Old Cape Magic is a novel of deep introspection and every family feeling imaginable, with a middle-aged man confronting his parents and their failed marriage, his own troubled one, his daughter's new life and, finally, what it was he thought he wanted and what in fact he has. The storytelling is flawless throughout, moments of great comedy and even hilarity alternating with others of rueful understanding and heart-stopping sadness, and its ending is at once surprising, uplifting and unlike anything this Pulitzer Prize winner has ever written.

Half way...Yawn.

Maybe it's the narrator, (or that we just listened to 'The Help' which has four different narrators, which was read with such wonderful inflections.) But, after two hours of listening to Old Cape, I simply cannot see finishing it.

That Old Cape Magic

I couldn't stand the narrator's voice,or accent. His emphasis on the works was very off-putting. I managed to listen to the whole book, but would have enjoyed the story much more if I had read it instead of listened to it.

That Old Cape Magic

I should have read the customer reviews before downloading this title. Too late now. Save your money. Read the print edition instead. It's unfortunate that Arthur Morey was chosen to read this book. His voice is monotonous, lacks any sort of inflection, and detracts enormously from Richard Russo's writing. The narrator sounded as bored reading this title and I was listening to it. Skip it!
