Reading progress update: I've read 16 out of 386 pages.

The Monk - Christopher MacLachlan, Matthew Gregory Lewis

*grumbles*

 

I have the Clipper audiobook (unabridged) narrated by Nigel Carrington to enjoy alongside my (fabuous) Penguin Classics edition.

 

And while Nigel Carrington is an excellent narrator, I question the producers' competence to produce an audiobook, because they have broken what to me should be one of the first rules of creating an audiobook:

 

DO NOT GIVE A SPOILERY SYNOPSIS OF THE PLOT AT THE START OF THE BLOODY BOOK!!!

 

Idiots.

 

Luckily, I caught this in time to hit the "forward" button on the cd. I'm peeved, tho.
