Fiction • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1993

The excellent narration of this production conveys the otherworldly atmosphere of this classic tale of Shangri-la. In this still timely tale foreigners lost in Tibetan mountains find their dreams and then lose them in the harsh glare of reality. It takes place before World War II and is a metaphor for our lost innocence and the end of paradise. Kay’s narrative is excellent in this fully voiced interpretation of British, American and Chinese characters. The production is marred by music which is not real but tinny, Hollywood-Chinese music. This is an excellent choice as a classic for listeners of all ages. E.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV 93]
