Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Robertson Dean

Fantasy • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

WHAT DREAMS MAY COME is a living, breathing masterpiece. And that's saying a lot, considering that the novel opens with the death of the main character. As fine as Richard Matheson's writing is, and that's also saying a lot, narrator Robertson Dean and the production team bring the story to life. Dean's perfect voice reveals the fear and wonder of a man as he discovers what lies after death. Dean projects sheer joy as protagonist Chris Nielson is reunited with his long-dead pet and agony at not being able to reach the woman he loves. Yet his version of the afterlife is a wonderful, perfect place. The stillness behind Dean's voice—without a single, stray sound—adds to the solemnity and beauty of the work. Never has silence sounded so good. M.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2009]
