Fiction • 16.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1939

British actor Phillip Madoc's outstanding narration conveys all of the warmth and affection of this 1939 classic about growing up in a Welsh coal-mining village. Endearing without being overly sentimental, Madoc's perfect Welsh accent differentiates the characters clearly, consistently and fondly. His low personal tones throughout the first-person narrative speak from the heart and draw the listener into an engrossing tale. This audio production coincides with the long-awaited video release of the 1941 Academy Award-winning film based on the same story. S.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 93]
