Poetry & Drama • 2 hrs. • Anthology • ©

Flo Gibson has enjoyed a distinguished career as an audiobook narrator who has recorded a vast number of classic works by many distinguished writers, including the Brontës. Her voice, rich with dynamism and tone, reflects a period mood that suits the authors perfectly. However, these recent poetry anthologies do not distinguish the publisher or narrator. The Brontë collection is better but Gibson's voice has lost much of its range and flexibility. To compound this, the poems are totally unindexed or identified except as the narrator reads them. Both collections have dozens of poems, many just a few lines. Requeuing is imprecise, and listeners are apt to give up in frustration. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 97]
