The recording of The Bank of Fear narrated by George Guidall made a particular impression on author Ignatius. In particular, he notes the research into pronunciations and attention to detail. Lots of names and expressions were checked with the author. "Guidall takes the recording very seriously." The thriller takes place primarily in London and revolves around Arab financial interests and corruption. Ignatius says the voices of the characters must first come alive in the mind of the narrator and be then projected in the narration. While the author's process has much the same evolution, sometimes a very different interpretation of the work emerges from the narrator. Narration can open the door for a different experience, adding the performer's layer of artistry. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 97]
