Young Adult • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1994

Highwater has created a surprisingly lush, poetic tale based on the ancient Sanskrit legend of the warrior Prince Rama, his love for Sita, and his epic struggles with Ravanna's evil kingdom of Lanka. This alliterative prose, alternately pounding and peaceful, pulsates with rhythm in George Guidall's reading. And while the narration itself resonates, Guidall's seemingly limitless range of voices gives life to creatures as diverse as the insidious demoness, Shurpanakha; Rama's gentle earthbride, Sita; and everything both natural and unnatural in between. This classic of Indian literature has never been more simply and movingly presented. P.E.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 96]
