Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Adam Sims

Classics • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1911

This slim Wharton novel is often overlooked--likely because it lacks the author's celebrated Old New York setting and intrigue--but this performance of the classic may earn it a second visit. Adam Sims delivers an excellent narration, capturing Frome's distinct New England demeanor and secondary characters' voices with equal attention to detail. The story of doomed lovers transcends despair to capture the imagination, thanks to Sims's energetic and appealing deep voice. What might be dismissed on the printed page as dreary comes to life. Listeners will empathize with Frome's plight and vividly picture themselves enduring the cold Massachusetts winter. If your English class of years gone by formed your opinion of this novel, try it again with this audiobook. L.B.F.
