Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tony Roberts, Karen Ziemba

Business & Finance • 1.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

This outstanding production has two parts. First comes a parable about how four whimsical characters deal with change. Next is a story about the story—a discussion among friends after a school reunion regarding how each of them reacted to the parable’s lessons. Narrator Tony Roberts brings the full measure of talent and engagement that the popular story deserves—his performance is a treat to hear. Karen Ziemba’s performance is equally enjoyable. Her beautiful speaking voice and total immersion in the narrative contribute substantially to the audio’s impact. The timeless message is that we can wait passively for change and ignore it when it comes or we can anticipate change, adapt to it, shape it, and get excited about what it will bring into our lives.
