The Kubric film is perhaps my all-time favorite. This version of it is an atrocity. Anyone who loves the film should avoid this like the plague! Also, it is only a two hour program, but costs as much as a full book. And I had assumed that it was just a "full cast" recording of the original novel. However, this seems to be three people, playing all the parts, having horribly re-written the original story and inserted music.

This is a fantastic adaptation of both the book and the film. Kerry Shale masterfully inhabits the role of not only the psychotic Nazi Doctor but the weak as Water President and most of the other key players, each acted with style and aplomb.
