MRS. QUEEN TAKES THE TRAIN

MRS. QUEEN TAKES THE TRAIN

William Kuhn
Read by Simon Prebble

Simon Prebble gives an impeccable performance in this story about Queen Elizabeth’s spontaneous and unescorted journey on a train, which throws the staff of the Royal Household into chaos as they hurry to locate Her Majesty before harm befalls her, or MI-5 and the press get involved. Prebble’s elegant reading captures the propriety of the British monarchy and its staff. Prebble’s pacing with the Queen’s soft-spoken, intentional speech is spot-on, as are his flawless transitions from one character’s accent to the next. His intentionally exaggerated American and Indian accents and his rendering of the subtle differences between various English accents make a charming story even more entertaining. A sweet treat for Anglophiles. M.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2012]
