Images of Bogart and Hepburn only enhance the tale of this unlikely pair during their determined assault against the Germans. Michael Kitchen presents a vivid narrative of overwhelming African heat, discomfort and maddening insects. His easy tone switches deftly from Charlie's patient excuses to Rose's impassioned schemes. The pace of the reading flows resignedly like the Lumbasi River and then boils with the fervor of their plan. The text is enhanced by phrasing and pace; Kitchen provides fitting voices for each character with subtle inflections. A selector who is prompted by familiarity with the movie will not be disappointed by this version, which is enlivened in audio interpretation. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 92]
