by | Read by Gonzalo Madurga

Spanish Audio • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 2007

El narrador del cuento UN VIAJE AL MAELSTRÖM conoce a un viejo andando por las montañas de Lofoten, Noruega. El anciano le dice que no es tan viejo como parece, sino que su apariencia es el resultado de una tragedia que le pasó mientras iba de pesca con sus dos hermanos. Así empieza esta obra corta de Poe que examina las profundidades del espíritu humano frente al misterio, la naturaleza y, por supuesto, la muerte. Leído por Gonzalo Madurga, este audiolibro presenta al lector con una experiencia de suspense sumamente agradable. La voz de Madurga tiene una calidad sincera que logra crear un ambiente cotidiano y real que es a la vez misterioso e imposible. La música espeluznante de acompañamiento también añade un toque surreal a la lectura. De forma típicamente Poe, este audiolibro dejará a los lectores con piel de gallina y con mucho para pensar. J.A.G. trans. L.R.P.

[ENGLISH TRANSLATION]--The narrator of DESCENT INTO THE MAELSTROM meets an old man while mountain climbing in Lofoten, Norway. This old man tells him that he’s not really as ancient as he seems. Rather, his appearance is the result of a tragedy that occurred while he was fishing with his two brothers. Thus begins this short work by Poe, which examines the depths of the human spirit when faced with the mysteries of nature, the unknown, and, of course, death. Gonzalo Madurga presents listeners with a thoroughly enjoyable experience in suspense. Madurga’s voice has a sincere quality that succeeds in creating an atmosphere that evokes everyday reality combined with shadowy impossibility. The eerie music that accompanies this story also adds a surreal touch. In typical Poe fashion, this audiobook will leave its listeners with goose bumps and a lot to think about. J.A.G., Trans.
