Fiction • 3.75 hrs. • Abridged • © 1991

Martin Jarvis continues to live up to his reputation as an AUDIOFILE Golden Voice with this presentation of Archer's classic rags-to-riches story of Charlie Trumper. Although abridged, there is no shortage of characters to either enrich or foil the life and livelihood of Charlie over the sixty-year span of the story. As Charlie ages from a boy to an elderly man, Martin Jarvis easily makes the transition from the naïve youngster to a character wise from life experiences. Jarvis also performs heroine Becky Salmon with warmth and enthusiasm. As a bonus, an interview with Jeffrey Archer provides an insightful look at the writing life of the author.
