Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Multimedia entertainer Euan Morton's energetic narrating talents are on full display as he conjures an amazing array of voices in Moore's raunchy reboot of Shakespeare's KING LEAR. Working with more than a dozen characters, Morton individualizes each to his or her utmost potential. He adorns Moore's foul-mouthed and conniving medieval players with his native Scots brogue and aptly provides equal vocal theatrics. The year is 1288, and murder and conspiracy abound in Lear's court. Pocket, the king's snarky court jester, sets out to solve this expletive-laden mystery and encounters many of Shakespeare's famous foils—updated with modern eccentricities. Moore is infamous for tackling "untouchable" subjects with biting humor, and Morton's whip-smart tongue doesn't waste a line. A.P.C. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
