Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Rick Adamson, George Guidal, Graeme Malcolm, Simon Prebble

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Anthology • © 1999

The exhilaration of danger and survival at sea immediately focuses the listener on this first of three collections in the Adrenaline series. Willis, a master anthologist, has selected stories that reflect both literary quality and classic adventure in both fiction and nonfiction. Complementing the work of Herman Wouk, Patrick O'Brian and Sebastian Junger, the selection of narrators is equally fine. Prebble, Malcolm and Guidall are masters at their craft. With riveting intensity and subtle drama, listeners are brought through a gale on Shackleton's Antarctic expedition, witness the sinking of the Titanic and experience a whale hunt in an open boat. The lack of liner notes to credit the narrators with specific stories is an oversight, but this spectacular program should not be missed. R.F.W.
