CROME YELLOW

by | Read by Robert Whitfield [Simon Vance]

Classics • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1922

Robert Whitfield's unabridged reading of Huxley's first novel is a triumph of one man's vocal capacities. Crome Yellow introduces many ideas Huxley would explore in fuller and more exact detail later, but Whitfield's vocal acrobatics in portraying the cast of characters assembled at an English country estate for a summer vacation in the 1920's makes for dazzling aural entertainment. Otherwise fatuous goings-on become intriguing shenanigans, and the characters' psychological portraits are rendered accurately through the unique voices Whitfield assigns them. With each change of the five cassettes, the listener is more captivated. H.L.S. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 99]
