PARADISE OF THE DAMNED The True Story of an Obsessive Quest for El Dorado, the Legendary City of Gold

by | Read by Timothy Andrés Pabon

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Narrator Timothy Andrés Pabon vividly conveys the struggle, passion, and extreme hardship that define Sir Walter Raleigh's quest for an elusive city of gold in the jungles of Guiana. Pabon narrates from deep in the throat in a kind of stage whisper that's highly effective for scenes of suspense and horror, of which this story has plenty. Raleigh was a colorful, controversial figure who spanned the reigns of Elizabeth I and James I, and eventually was beheaded for treason. Poet, explorer, and adventurer, Raleigh is as fascinating in this meticulously researched history as he has been for centuries in legend. The ending is doubly tragic and ironic--with a final twist that few listeners will expect. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2024]
