Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Simon Vance

Science Fiction • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

Priest’s remarkable novel won the World Fantasy Award in 1996. Now it's been produced as an audiobook every bit as remarkable. Simon Vance provides the voices of two late-nineteenth-century warring professional stage magicians: Alfred Borden and Rupert Angier. The entire novel is told through journal entries by these two prestidigitators. Hearing Vance mellifluously pronounce words like "prestidigitator" as if they were part of his normal speech makes the book worth the time, but there is so much more. These characters are shrouded in mystery from the very first minutes, and Vance expertly portrays these two men as their lives (and their tricks) are slowly revealed. S.D.D.
