Christopher Cazenove takes a heroic stab at this modern version of a Greek epic. Childhood friend and companion Rai Merchant narrates this tale of Ormus Cana and Vina Apsara, an unlikely pair of misfits who become rock legends. While Ormus and Vina live in a fantasy world removed from everyday life, Rai acts as the voice of reason, staying firmly rooted in the real world. Cazenove moves easily from one character to another, taking the story from India to New York and London and beyond. He travels through time with each character, bringing Rushdie's vibrant protagonists to life. Cazenove's talent shines when he presents supercharged emotions during arguments, switching handily from Ormus to Vina to Rai and back again. A seamless performance of an excellent story. H.L.S.
