by | Read by Charlton Heston

Fiction • 2.3 hrs. • Abridged • ©

With his resonant voice, Heston reveals the pride and nobility of Santiago--weathered but not beaten by years at sea. He tells the tale of how Santiago catches the fish of his life with tempo and tone which mirror the text. Initially his voice is unhurried and placid as the stage is set for the hunt. Heston increases the pace and emotion as the adventure unfolds. At the story’s close, the narrator speaks with all the sorrow, pain and exhaustion the protagonist feels upon his return home. Hemingway’s words as spoken by Heston reveal why The Old Man and the Sea is worthy of its Pulitzer. M.P.T. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 93]
