Classics • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1881

For moderns, few authors gain more from oral interpretation than Henry James, with his long, convoluted sentence structure. Coinciding with the release of a film version, comes an excellent cassette reading of James's classic novel. Since her debut in Chaplin's Limelight, Claire Bloom has distinguished herself as a great actress and great beauty. In the James abridgment (Penguin AudioBooks), her sound is as beautiful as her face, and her delivery clear, intelligent and insightful. However, the unabridged cassettes endure the sonic consequences of cheap duplication. Y.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 97]
