THE OLDER THE FIDDLE, THE BETTER THE TUNE The Joys of Reaching a Certain Age

by | Read by Dash Ray, Cynthia Harris, Bernie McInerney, Barbara Rosenblat

Personal Growth • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

What's good about getting older? That's the question "Today Show" personality Willard Scott asked celebrities and a range of people from all walks of life. Scott introduces each piece, with four narrators tackling the voices of the respondents as they share anecdotes and inspirational thoughts. The passages from ordinary people come across better on tape. It's slightly odd to hear the words of, say, Fred Rogers or the former President Bush coming from a less familiar voice. The readers wisely avoid doing impressions and character voices, concentrating instead on capturing emotion and personality. Scott goes for chuckles and smiles, rather than deep philosophy, and his audiobook hits the target. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
