CHARACTER IS DESTINY Inspiring Stories Every Young Person Should Know and Every Adult Should Remember

by | Read by Arthur Morey

Contemporary Culture • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

John McCain's introduction gives interesting insights into his character and the family that produced it. Likewise, the lives of the 34 individuals McCain and co-author Mark Salter explore are all worthy of study and imitation. Their selections range across history and around the globe, demonstrating that good character is universal. Unfortunately, while adults might wade through the clunky writing and frequent clichés, it's unlikely that many young people will make it very far in this collection. Arthur Morey's narration is clear and serious, but unfortunately, it fits the collection's style, which means it sounds stuffy and preachy at times. Morey does little to bring out the humor of a figure like Thomas More or the quiet bravery of Gandhi. G.T.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
