With faultless diction, a storyteller's sense of pacing, and a perfect understanding of the author's words, narrator Christina Moore makes this book come alive. Her voice is low, with a hint of nasal twang, and she uses it to recreate the surreal atmosphere so wonderfully described in the text. Moore does not create overt characters; she subtly separates conversations from descriptive passages. This ensures that the book flows and retains the integrity of Hoffman's tone. Ostensibly the story of two sisters reared by their magic-practicing aunts, the book is also a gentle meditation on love, compassion and human fears. Moore weaves these themes into a wonderful listening experience. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
