It's always a positive sign when a movie adaptation encourages its audience to go to the original book. Vikram Seth's AN EQUAL MUSIC has a different effect: It's a marvelous novel that drives readers to their CD collections. The narrator is a violinist in a string quartet who rekindles his romance with a (now married) woman with whom he had fallen in love many years before. The story of their love, told in language that is fittingly musical, is told rapturously by Steven Crossley--he is perfectly suited to the main character, and his handling of female voices is uncommonly good. Together, Seth and Crossley do not sound a single false note. D.B. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
