Narrator Isaac Drandich's broad Aussie accent and facility with intonation and pace allow for a clear presentation of this complex tale of the Aboriginal people of Queensland. The epic is peopled with characters who represent a wide range—from ancients living in dream mists to contemporary youths fighting to keep their country's people and resources from being exploited. Drandich convincingly presents these characters, giving each a distinguishable voice, without ever sounding contrived or forced: a real listening pleasure. His performance is an excellent complement to native author Alexis Wright's award-winning novel, which reflects the mysticism, superstition, and harsh reality that define the political and cultural landscape of Australia.
