Fiction • 3 hrs. • Abridged • ©

The familiar music of Debussy's "Clair de Lune" begins the reading of this classic story of lost dreams, romance, infidelity and retribution. Unfortunately, the theme music is not repeated. Claire Bloom's soft, feminine voice and British accent convey the mid-nineteenth-century French setting well. The abridgment, however, is rushed. There are too many hasty transitions from scene to scene. Some of these scene changes are a quick sentence which, if half-heard because of a wandering thought or a minor interruption, leave the listener wondering what is happening. From the narration, one learns the story line but loses the impact of the novel. D.W.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 93]
