FREEDOM The Story of My Second Life

by | Read by Edita Brychta

Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

Having finally escaped after twenty years in a Moroccan desert prison, Malika Oufkir is anything but free. Edita Brychta, who read Oufkir's first audio, STOLEN LIVES, recounts this new story in a soft European-accented voice that is almost lulling. But her voice changes quickly when she punctuates Oufkir's painful anecdotes about owning her hard-won freedom? such as her shocked confusion at the plentitude of items in a grocery store and her almost pitiful indignation when a shopper gets in her way. Brychta's voice is timid as she describes the difficulty of twenty lost years, which make Oufkir feel like a " child in an adult body." As a writer, Oufkir excels when she zooms in to relate specific incidents. S.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
