MIRROR, MIRROR

by | Read by John McDonough, Kate Forbes, Barbara Rosenblat, Richard Ferrone

Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Known for his clever revisions of fairy tales, Gregory Maguire uses the story of Snow White as the basis for his intriguing new novel. John McDonough's highly expressive voice guides us expertly through Maguire's blending of the fairy tale with the political intrigue of Renaissance Italy. Characters include the young Bianca; her exiled father; her dangerous caretaker, Lucrezia Borgia; and the dwarves that attend her. Narrators Barbara Rosenblat, Richard Ferrone, and Kate Forbes step in briefly for chapters told in the first person and, although their narration is well done, the switches in voices are distracting after hearing McDonough read those same characters' voices in dialogue.
