Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Lee

Fiction • 23 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

John Lee is the perfect voice for this saga of nineteenth-century Sudan. From the siege of Khartoum in 1884 to the British recapture of the Sudan nearly 20 years later, Wilbur Smith fills this desolate landscape with fascinating characters, both British and Arab. Lee's reading brings life to the people and times with words as flowing as the Mahdis' colorful robes. This unabridged version of Smith's sweeping novel provides readers with a deep understanding of the issues and conflicts that drove Arabs and Brits into bloody ongoing conflict. Perhaps even more important, this wonderful collaboration of Lee's voice and Smith's powerful words also provides some insight into twenty-first-century strife. T.J.M.
