by | Read by Roger Allam

Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Roger Allam's rich, clear voice is an excellent vehicle for the delivery of Jeffrey Archer's novel based on the life and exploits of one of England's greatest adventurers, George Mallory. Archer's book presents a multidimensional picture of Mallory that goes well beyond his persona as the national hero who was one of the first to attempt Everest. Allam's British accent and warm tones bring authenticity to the text. The listener is not only treated to the intense action and heartbreak of Mallory's career as an early mountaineer but is also allowed to watch the deeply rewarding personal side of his life unfold. Text and presentation meld into a totally satisfying experience. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
