Ahoy, ye landlubbers all! Prepare to embark upon the many adventures of one Captain Charles Tyng of Massachussetts, who lived and flourished in the early 1800's. Moving from a Dickensian childhood to the unrelenting life of the merchant seaman, he, like the Ancient Mariner, holds the listener in thrall. His voice has been well chosen. Rudnicki has a salty sound, husky from commands given in a high wind but genteel, as befits his background. So attuned to his Captain is our reader that the rare moments of humor are a mere chuckle in an otherwise broad and steady New England accent. Here is authenticity at its best.
