The complete, unabridged audiobook of Titus Groan.
As the first novel opens, Titus, heir to Lord Sepulchrave, has just been born: He stands to inherit the miles of rambling stone and mortar that stand for Gormenghast Castle. Inside, all events are predetermined by a complex ritual, lost in history, understood only by Sourdust, Lord of the Library. There are tears and strange laughter; fierce births and deaths beneath umbrageous ceilings; dreams and violence and disenchantment contained within a labyrinth of stone.
A brilliantly sustained flight of gothic imagination.
Some of the most incredible use of English I have ever experienced. Excellent reader. Highly recommend.
I loved this story, and every minute spent listening to the narrator. It is a world within itself, filled with realer than life characters. I will be thinking about this for a long while yet. I think this is a story that sticks with you, long after it has been told.
