WELCOME TO THE MONKEY HOUSE

by | Read by David Strathairn, Maria Tucci, Bill Irwin, Tony Roberts, Dylan Baker

Classics • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1950

Combine Vonnegut's one-of-a-kind prose with the varied and brilliant performances of these five narrators, and the results are hypnotic. Listeners can enjoy Bill Irwin's resonant tones in the story "Where I Live," as well as the raspy, forthright voice of Maria Tucci in the classic "Harrison Bergeron." The title story's narrator, Dylan Baker, reads with an ironic perfection, a slight nasal twang complementing the trippingly satiric prose Vonnegut made famous. David Strathairn reads "Adam" with a gentle strength, his voice precise and graceful, while Tony Roberts possesses a barely restrained drama in his pieces. This audiobook is a stroke of genius that not only illuminates Vonnegut's stories, but polishes them to a shine. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
