    Very interesting. A little hard to follow sometimes, but it just encouraged me to spend a little more time reflecting on it. His connection between the Monroe character and his own recollections of Nazi Germany were interesting and unexpected.

    Not well suited to the audiobook format. This might have been interesting to see in person, but the background noises seem distracting and out of place when one is listening, not seeing. Also, the story jumps around between the past and present. This is hard to follow without the benefit of the visual cues that were (I assume) part of the play.

    I love Arthur Miller. Somehow I'm not sure this translates well to a CD for commuter listening. Some phrases were hard to hear and yet, when I cranked up the volume, the next sentence or sound effect blasted my ears. Yes, sound effect -- train whistles, clangs, all kinds of odd noises... To the story: a tormented, guilt-ridden attorney saddled with the conflicted unhappy women he is born unto and then chooses. Classic case of some guys never learn, I suppose. The one woman he seemed happy with, a frequent Nazi concentration camp visitor, he leaves in Europe leading us to believe he doesn't want to be happy. A well-done play but I think I'd prefer to see it on stage.

    Always interesting and not Miller's best but certainly adds to understanding of male/female relationships.

    For starters, I didn't know it was performed as the play with Anthony LaPaglia. That made the characters come alive. The conversations between the characters made me sad and glad that I don't have conversations this intense with my partner. I wondered about the pairing, Miller & Monroe, now I understand it was about his need.
