Brilliance Audio's reissue of this 1986 production features a full cast. As Vito Corleone directs his powerful New York crime family, a reader delivers the narrative text, and individual actors take over for the dialogue. But the use of a cast is not a gimmick. It's a dramatic device. The cast infuses each character with emotion and personality, giving the work more of a sense of theater than a simple reading. Thus, the narration exploits the very nature of audiobooks to present a special work. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
