THE HEART IS A LONELY HUNTER

by | Read by Cherry Jones

Fiction • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1940

There are many ways to describe this book: heartbreaking, stunning, unforgettable, human. However it is described, McCullers's masterpiece is riveting reading because of its appeal to our sense of morality and the way it touches on race, class, religion, and family. Narrator Cherry Jones is perfect for this work. She has a quirky, natural reading voice that draws us into the novel and the ability to create riveting characters and accents that capture the mood and pacing of the time. Jones inhabits each person we meet, creating a moral center that she uses to complement McCullers's words. These people have real emotions, and they make critical mistakes we can identify with. Together, narrator and author have created a world worth listening to. R.I.G. 2005 Audie Award Finalist (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
