Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Lee

Fiction • 22.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

John Lee’s outstanding performance equals the depth and complexity of this superb novel, which chronicles the lives of the men, women, and children in a small town in Anatolia during WWI. Despite the sprawling number of townspeople, it’s easy to keep track of the individual characters since Lee portrays each one distinctively. He performs male and female, old and young with emotional depth and appropriate tone. Lee’s voice is supple, and his pronunciation is spectacular. He says phrases like “Karatavuk at Gallipoli” as easily as he might say “bread and jam.” A remarkable narrative paired with a stellar performance. This is a recording to savor. R.F.
