This new version of this classic illustrates one approach to audio literature. John Sessions acts, rather than reads, Naxos’s abridged version, giving each character a full portrayal. Sessions stresses melodrama; he fakes his way through some of the more complex locutions, thus obscuring their meaning. Nonetheless, the tape delivers a satisfying rendition of a tale everyone has heard of but few have actually read. Y.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
