James Gurney developed a magical civilization of dinosaurs in the lavishly illustrated book, DINOTOPIA. The elegant, detailed illustrations convey the world as much as the text. It's a testimony to the strength of the story and the production magic of Tom Lopez of ZBS that DINOTOPIA could have great success as an audio program. Released in 1993 by Turner Publishing's brief foray into audio, the first audio is an exciting experience. The new WORLD BENEATH adventure, based on Gurney's second book, goes even further. Lopez takes full advantage of the technical possibilities of digital sound and the integration of voice, original music and sound effects. This audio drama is a spectacle of adventure in story and sound. Don't be fooled thinking dinosaurs are for kids. The story hints of origins with Captain Nemo, the STAR WARS bar and the best of classic adventure stories. Every audiophile should experience DINOTOPIA: THE WORLD BENEATH. And it's bound to delight any newcomers to the medium. R.F.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 96]
