The Tattooist of Auschwitz is available #richardarmitage

Just a reminder. Full disclosure: I did buy it (as one of those “support Richard Armitage’s career” things — as I still remember the days when I wished I could send him money for various things he had done that moved me so much); I haven’t decided if I will listen to it yet or not, though.

  1. I pre-ordered with a credit but haven’t downloaded it yet. Still trying to decide if I will read the book first.


    • I thought about doing that — would give me a better idea if it’s worthwhile — but I guess it has to be ordered from England at the moment.


  2. I’ve listened to an hour so far and all I have to say at this point is that I’m rather disappointed with the quality of the recording. It’s as if multiple recording sessions had been sloppily cut and edited together; the change in recording levels makes the listening experience jarring and Richard’s voice ends up sounding strong and clear one moment and raspy and distant the next. What’s more, this occurs at any point, from one paragraph to the next, one sentence to the next or even in the middle of a sentence!


    • That’s a shame. Audible’s poor recording quality has been a regular complaint for a long time but it’s a shame that it should impact this project so forcefully.


      • There are those who claim it’s just Richard making intentional choices to show changes in point of view but that hasn’t been my impression. I’d have to finish listening to the whole thing to decide whether my first opinion is off the mark.

        So far there’ve been moments when I got the odd impression I was listening to an old and stretched cassette tape; maybe that’s what they aimed for (?). The story is certainly compelling.


  3. not sure yet if I want to purchase this or not… debating with myself.. lol


    • Apparently you can buy it on Google Play for $16.95 (no membership); however, I think that’s just an access, you don’t get a file.
