THE GIRL WHO LOVED TOM GORDON

by | Read by Anne Heche

Mystery & Suspense • 6.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1999

You can't survive nine days lost in the woods without something to hang on to, especially if you're only 9. For Trisha McFarland, "something" is faith in her hero, Red Sox pitcher Tom Gordon, and listening to him play on her Walkman, at least, until the batteries run out. Reader Anne Heche clearly remembers what it's like to be 9-years-old. Her fresh, young-sounding voice presents Trisha's point of view beautifully. While her narrative passages occasionally sound read, rather than told, her presentation of Trisha's words and thoughts is flawless. Other characters are skillfully performed, save for a New Hampshire backwoods bubba who sounds like he's from Arkansas. Musical and other audio effects polish the production to a shining finish.
