Nothing is friendlier to reading aloud than classic storytelling and the vivid narration of colorful events. Author Mary Stewart has again mined the rich vein of Arthurian Britain for the magical events of this tale. Reader Richard Mitchley is pleasantly effortless to listen to as he deftly follows the pace and mood of the text without attempting to place a personal stamp on it--a cultivated reader, he focuses on craft, rather than display. He differentiates character voices lightly but delivers every word of dialogue with such naturalness and conviction that the listener never feels anything is missing. This is genre entertainment that does what it does "excellent well." J.N. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 98]
