BIG FISH tells the funny and poignant story of Edward Bloom, a legendary figure, seen through the eyes of his son. Tom Stechschulte takes this wonderful story full of myths, tall tales, jokes and yarns, and injects humor, compassion, patience and warmth in all the right places. Stechschulte effortlessly varies his voice for each character, expressing the devotion and awe each holds for Bloom. Most amazingly, the reading makes the entire tale--exaggeration aside--remarkably believable and ultimately too short. A story this enjoyable should be as long as Wallace's imagination is grand. And Stechschulte's delivery of it is impeccable. H.L.S. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
