Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michael Palin

Contemporary Culture • 11.9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

Let's capture Michael Palin and make him bring us on his next voyage. This one is the circumnavigation of the Pacific Rim, and it's, at times, so frightening that it's probably best that he go without us and just continue to read his journals aloud. He munches maggots and sees the splendors of distant civilizations, all the while injecting historical facts and personal asides. He characterizes his new acquaintances in the dialects and accents of their regions, and every so often a familiar voice from the old Monty Python appears and reminds us that Palin has a marvelous sense of humor. The combination of his glee, his sensitivity and a good headset is a fulfilling way to travel. J.P.
