Read more Saki!
Nadia May seems to be a very popular reader, judging by the number and quality of her productions so far, but somehow she doesn`t seem to agree with my ears. I simply cannot stand these high-pitched female voices that rise to painfully shrill and even strident tones at the slightest provocation, notably in dialogue situations, of which there are many here. Or is this perhaps just a technically bad recording?
Frederick Davidson, now, is a special case. His unabashed toffee-nosed snobbery is rather adequate for the likes of Saki, Wodehouse, Waugh etcetera, but if you listen long enough you might want to hang him on the nearest lantern post and join the people's revolution.
Anyway, this experience has sent me back to my battered print editions of Saki's witty satirical short stories. Pure joy!
