Three brothers, Lengar, warrior-chief; Camaban, crippled sorcerer; and Saban, peace-loving artisan, are the mighty pillars around which this epic novel is constructed. Bernard Cornwell transports the reader back to a time four thousand years ago, as he creates a landscape, a civilization, a reason, and the method to explain Stonehenge, the sun's great stone temple, and how it was made. Sean Barrett reads quickly, but such is the delicate enunciation of his words that there is never a sense of hurry. Barrett paints portraits with his voice, showing in sound the intelligence and nobility of Saban, the growing madness of Camaban, and the lascivious brutality of Lengar, and the distinctive qualities of numerous other characters. There are few things as satisfying as a good epic novel. STONEHENGE is such a book. It is gratifying that it is being released in both print and audio formats simultaneously.
