At once modern and timeless, THE NAUTICAL CHART explores the depths of the ocean and the psyche. Forgotten for centuries, a Spanish brigantine lost in a power struggle once again draws attention from people with dangerously opposing interests. Manuel Coy loves the sea and the woman who rapaciously seeks the sunken ship. But tortuously he finds too much else is also hidden beneath the surface. Coy’s story is told by another character, and George Guidall lends his solid, versatile voice to that narrator’s role. Like the storyteller, Guidall recounts the details in a way designed to intrigue his audience. This is adventure with a philosophical bent, and with Guidall’s sure vocal navigation the listener’s course remains true. D.J. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
