Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Frederick Davidson

Fiction • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1924

Have you had difficulty reading A Passage to India? Try listening to this talented British reader. What a difference! Frederick Davidson’s fully voices reading makes accessible the rich nuances that permeate this story. Boredom gives way to fear, misunderstanding to hatred as characters and cultures collide in India’s Marabar Caves. Over this rich complex of tones presides the godlike irony of Forster. Davidson’s skillful pacing juggles all these voices--Hindu and Muslim Indian, as well as a variety of British accents--weaving Forster’s web of ambiguity and drama into a tapestry of wisdom. Thus, this audio version though not improving the book, enables us to read this complex but important work with better understanding. P.E.F.
