Dick Hill can add another outstanding performance to his resume with his spellbinding narration of Wells's thrilling classic. Hill’s deep, sonorous voice rises and falls as he characterizes the unfortunate narrator and the vivid details of the horrific Martian attack on Earth. Hill's slow pace and serious tone help to heighten the suspense of the story, and he excels at bringing the dialogue to life, ranting the irrational words of the insane curate and moaning the dying cry of the last Martian. While he skillfully delivers the text, Hill does not overwhelm the story by being overly dramatic. He gives a masterful reading, vibrantly enhancing the text and driving the dramatic tension of the plot. T.D.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
