Capturing the flavor of the Victorian age, Flo Gibson reads James's short stories with grace and style. James's stories are dramatically paced, with insights that sneak up on the reader slowly. Gibson uses her skills to enhance the text, carrying the listener along to the crashing, yet demur, climax. In keeping with the nineteenth-century ideal, Gibson remains distant from her characters. Vocal characterizations are minimal but fitting for each story. Gibson's sense of pacing and her understanding of the text make her an excellent docent for this trip through James's short works.
