THE MOONSTONE

by | Read by Michael Pennington, Terrence Hardiman & Carol Boyd

Mystery & Suspense • 5.25 hrs. • Abridged • © 1868

This seminal English mystery is presented in an unusual, but appropriate, manner, reflecting the episodic nature of the story. Three actors present the story in parts, taking on separate first-person accounts of events. All the voices are convincing, cultured British intonations describing the events surrounding the apparent theft of the Moonstone diamond from a country mansion. Each voice shades the various characters featured within the particular parts, just as the narrative offers characterizations of the other persons without attempting an outright mimicry. The abridgment is nicely done, too, avoiding any choppiness. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 96]
