THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tim Pigott-Smith

Classics • 10.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

Three brothers, a difficult estranged father, murder, love, hate, goodness, and evil--Dostoyevsky's classic has it all. Most of all, it has Tim Pigott-Smith reading. The veteran British actor and audiobook reader offers a nuanced narration in a pleasant baritone that pitches with excitement when the action explodes and paces evenly when the story calms. It's an intelligent reading by an actor who seems to know the story intimately--no miss-paced phrasing, no character confusion. Speaking of characters, the voices of the central personalities, including the women, are distinct, believable, and revealing. Musical interludes by Scriabin and Borodin are a mood-enhancing plus, and the booklet with the detailed track listing is a model that other producers should follow. Simply lovely. A.C.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
