Description

James Purefoy stars in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Robert M. Pirsig's multi-million best-selling philosophical novel. One of the most important and influential books of the past half-century, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance tells the iconic story of a father and son's motorcycle trip across America in the 1960s. Yet it also describes a personal and philosophical journey, asking questions along the way about how to live a meaningful life.

Now dramatised for the first time by Peter Flannery (Our Friends in the North, George Gently, The Devil's Whore) and starring James Purefoy (Rome, Injustice, Ironclad), this full-cast drama adds a new and original dimension to a true modern classic.

Where is the full book? little value for money. I'm a bit disappointed since the story is ok but you want to hear everything

I should have bought the book.

pro: I liked that it was dramatized
con: it was too abridged.
To sum it up: create a dramatized unabridged version because what I heard was good.

WARNING!!! Not the book.

It's an audioplay based on the novel. I wasted a credit not knowing. FYI, the other version on Audible is also NOT the book. (wasted another credit). It's a heavily edited shorter version. Audible doesn't carry the complete novel. Bummer.

Very Engaging and though provoking

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

yes, the book is dramatised and it makes it very interesting to listen. The use of mild music is also soothing and adds to the drama

Book is way better (no surprise)

You cannot boil a great book down this much (especially not a book as dense as the original) and maintain the QUALITY of the full story.

amazing! great to hear this book again

really good. I listen to this book a while back while visiting Spain. I feel like I understand the setting of the book a little more by listening this short part dramatized. def worth listening too if you like the book or audio.

A good story perhaps too dramatized

What made the experience of listening to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (Dramatised) the most enjoyable?

The dramatization is done quite well, and at times you can feel the emotion coming through the characters voices.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I wish I could say the child was my favorite character, but he seemed to be a brat. The father in present sense was perhaps not likable, due to his roughness, but you could empathize with him.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It's very short making it a easy to listen through in a couple of hours.

Not what I wanted

Disappointed. This is not what I was looking for. Should have paid more attention. It would be nice if Amazon would take returns - but no way of course.

pretty good I thought.

do wish they had the full book though. this version is quite emotional. the book fleshed out the ideas more.

Dramatic!

This Version of the book contains a lot of (mostly pointless) background music and noises. Both is mixed so loudly that the spoken text of the narrators is sometimes hard to understand.

Most annoyingly, the philosophical content of the original book seems to have been almost completely excluded from this version, save for a few paragraphs.

I do not recommend this audiobook.

a bit weird, but I get the point

After all very good. Loved the narrator, he did an awesome job. I got this book as a recommendation. I see why, because it shows nicely the conflict one can have between how you want to be and how you should be.
I found it a bit off, but nothing to bad, can recommend
