LION [A Long Way Home]

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Vikas Adam

Biography & Memoir • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

LION is a gripping true story well told, making it a compelling audiobook. Narrator Vikas Adam's clear diction and engaging Australian accent are easy to embrace right from the beginning, a beginning that captivates with its air of mystery and remarkable revelations. The incredible true story of a lost child who travels from India to Australia is fascinating; assigning the elegant simplicity of good storytelling to Adam was a stroke of genius. His pacing is deliberate and calm, allowing listeners to absorb the story's details fully. There is no need to dress this story in a melodramatic voice--the story itself carries all the emotion we need. Rather, Adam steps back to give us space to feel it. L.B.F.
