Library Ed. Books on Tape 1977
CS ISBN 0736600507 $56.00 Seven cassettes
Listeners are becoming more and more discriminating about the fidelity of the audio production, as well as the artistry of the reading performance. Michael Pritchard's 1977 reading for Books on Tape reflects a quality typical for that time; the fidelity is only fair. Pritchard's reading is too rushed and gives the listener little chance to form images and absorb the material. His vocal characterizations are only moderately effective in helping the listener enter Huck's world of diverse personalities. If Pritchard's heart really is into telling the story, his voice betrays him. P.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 92]
