CUBA STRAIT is a novel that makes the listener yearn for an abridgment. It's long and tortuous, and the story, although purportedly based upon real events, seems thoroughly implausible. Unfortunately, Gary Littman's performance matches the story's mediocrity. At times emotional, at times bland, and often so theatrical that the characters sound neither natural nor realistic, Littman seems unsure how to deliver this tale. The result is a performance that lacks consistency and narrative drive, never sure what it is or how it should sound. While Stroud's fans are incredibly loyal, this book is not likely to be one that will get new readers hooked. D.J.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
