Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sid Sagar

Fiction • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Rushdie's latest novel defies easy description. It is magical realism and myth, historical fiction and fable, all centered around the life story of Pampa Kampana, queen of Vijayanagar--Victory City--in southern India. Narrator Sid Sagar embraces the tone of this audiobook; within moments of its opening, his performance invites listeners to suspend disbelief and step into an entirely different world. Sagar's confidence contributes to the appeal of the tale: A strong pace and the bold delivery of both action and dialogue invite the most skeptical listener to enjoy traditional storytelling at its finest. Sagar's narrative skill spans drama, humor, and suspense with equal alacrity, and the effect is thoroughly engaging. With his mellifluous voice and fearless approach, Sagar makes Victory City a destination for a variety of listeners. L.B.F.
