SOUNDER

by | Read by Avery Brooks

Children • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1992

This 1970 Newbury Award winner has become a classic. Set in the South, it's a poignant story of a dog, his master and master's family, whose lives are forever changed by one incident. The magnificent trained bass of Avery Brooks is a beautiful compliment to Armstong's prose; words and voice clearly paint images and evoke emotional responses from the listener. Brooks uses a modern pace and Southern accent for the characters. He's talented at conveying personality and sentiment in the few words his characters utter. Blues riffs and Brooks's soulful singing set the tone and enhance the tale. This bittersweet saga, richly told by Brooks, will remain in listeners' hearts and minds long after the final line is heard. J.H.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 96]
