Kate Reading is a master narrator of fantasy audiobooks of great length with multiple points of view. This study of Shakespeare's KING LEAR is true to form. She narrates the story with clarity as the plot weaves back and forth through time, telling the story of the king and each of the three daughters' formative years. She portrays with subtlety the king's mounting madness. Parallel to that, she depicts the eldest daughter's growing hardness of heart, the second daughter's increasing frustration at her failure to produce an heir, and the third daughter's quiet steadfastness. Reading's pace is never hurried, but she efficiently moves the story steadily forward. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2018]
