Hawthorne's classic tale of pride, guilt and revenge comes to life through the gifted voice of Allison Green. She heightens interest by easily differentiating, not only the many emotions of the characters, but the ages and gender as well. Her sprightly tempo keeps Hawthorne from getting tedious. Because the pace is so swift, the listener is occasionally aware of the sound of Green's breathing. The autobiographical "The Customs House" is complete on Tape 1 with the novel beginning on Tape 2. The listener has the option of hearing the introduction after completing the novel, a way in which some teachers assign material. C.J.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV 92]
