A sweet romance with a sour ending, TIMEPIECE is narrated with precision and force. A millionaire and a poor pregnant woman make a strange pair but eventually work things out. Gregory Gorton does well with the male lead but falls short on all other parts, sounding irritatingly squeaky as the wife (like a man trying to raise his voice several levels higher to imitate a female's). The other parts sound unrealistic. This fairy tale turned nightmare is timeless but would benefit from a straight reading. A.G.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
