it was amazing

This reading by Mark Hammer is extraordinary, breathing life into every character and navigating time lapses, twists, narrative turns and capturing subtle accents and regionalisms with finesse and caring. At once he is Mitchum's Max Cady and then he is Steiger's Gillespie. At moments you feel a small, half-drunk Faulkner himself etching the Shakespearean prose out in a hard, stubby pencil then banging away all night on a typewriter; and this reader persists. It's just terrific!
