With narration that is sensuous, yet gentle, cultured, yet elemental, Janet McTeer brings an atmosphere of passion and love, world-weariness and an eternal interest in life to the story of Pandora and her long life as mortal and vampire. Framed as the narrative that Pandora writes at the request of David Talbot, a relatively new vampire, after their meeting in Paris, the tale begins in ancient Rome where she meets Marius, her great love and the being who will change her into one of the Undead. McTeer captures the independence and intelligence of this remarkable character with a voice that has great strength within its velvety tones. Her performance wraps the listener in the folds of the story. M.A.M. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
