No matter how often one hears the tale or in what form one experiences it, The Incredible Journey seems beyond all human knowledge of reality. This adventure, with its anthropomorphic characters, has long been a favorite of all ages. Here the drama receives a finely tuned performance. Follows reads clearly and expertly. Where the book shows a tendency toward overwritten atmospheric descriptions, her voice indicates emotion without stress and excitement without bathos. Her vocal momentum lets her audience quicken to the perils of the three pets. Nothing is added. No theatrical frills are allowed to interfere with the mute but poignant efforts of the animals in their passage. S.B.S. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 98]
