Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Paul Shelley

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

This true-life travelogue of a modern journey across India on elephant glistens with energy and adventure. The story blends humor, excitement and deep empathy for the plight of the Indian elephant. Paul Shelley’s performance shows exquisite characterization. Listeners quickly become involved with the characters, their foibles and their distinct verbal mannerisms. Even the unique personality of each elephant is clearly drawn. Voices, both male and female, and accents--Indian, British and American--are well done. The reader is never jarred out of the story despite the extended character range. Instead, Shelley’s talents draw the listener more deeply into the tale, enriching each event and character as it unfolds. J.S.G.
