The self-conscious, unsure son of abolitionist John Brown tells his story in a novel of racial and generational conflict. The young man wrestles with slavery, his fanatical father, his hormones and his God all at the same time and even manages some inspiring victories. Gravelly voiced George DelHoyo gives a great deal of soul to the hero and a feeling of authenticity to his other characterizations as well. Listeners need to exercise a little patience because DelHoyo takes his time entering the world of the novel. He grows into his character slowly as he reads, so that his performance on the last side of these cassettes is far richer than on the first. Fortunately, the author's evocative writing carries him until he reaches cruising speed. Y.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 99]
