THE MOVIEGOER

by | Read by Christopher Hurt

Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1960

Walker Percy won the National Book Award for THE MOVIEGOER, which concerns the life of the searching and rootless Binx Bolling. In a gentle Southern accent narrator Christopher Hurt delivers the story with a slow, lazy lilt which suits the text and evokes a pervading spiritual emptiness. Unfortunately, Hurt’s characterizations fall short of the mark; his reading of dialogue is just that--reading--so the characters never come to life. This audio version does not maintain the listener’s interest or do justice to the text. R.B.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 94]
