A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy by Laurence Sterne (Free Audio Book)
A SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY THROUGH FRANCE AND ITALY by LAURENCE STERNE – A free audiobook
Narrated by Martin Geeson
A Sentimental Journey through France and Italy is a unique audiobook in that it seems to be woven with no rhyme or reason and seems to float around its own thoughts before deciding to fly away into the ether. Laurence Sterne has already made a reputation with his peculiar novel “Tristam Shandy” and this one takes the same route as his previous work.
A Sentimental Journey is an audiobook that will be divisive in its theme but should be given a chance by everyone nonetheless. The story of Parson Yorick, a traveler that is often viewed as an extremely sentimental fellow and a man of “feeling” is an interesting story that shines and delivers due to the writing style. This free audiobook offers a unique glimpse of the world from the eyes of someone who can see beauty and light amid the dirt and darkness. A Sentimental Journey is also brilliantly read by Martin Geeson who appears to understand the work of Sterne and knows how to deliver the story from the author’s unique perspective.
This free audiobook is a unique brand of its own thanks to the eccentric writing style. This is an interesting listen for anyone who wishes to try something new when it comes to storytelling. Will it be a worthwhile journey? Only the listener will be able to find that out and they will only reach the verdict if the accompany Parson Yorick to the very end.
