Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Robin Bailey

Fiction • 7 hrs. 13 min. • Unabridged • © 1992

Wealthy London banker Henry Warren's life has become a shambles until he stumbles into the severely depressed town of Sharples. The spirit of the unemployed townspeople gives Warren's life new direction and some surprises--which make for lively listening. Robin Bailey's reading is impeccably clear, and the pace is perfect. He depicts each character with a different voice. From the butler's imperious attitude to the bluster of the tram driver, the narrator captures our attention. Women's voices are done with equal professionalism. The packaging accurately depicts the spirit of the novel and includes story and narrator information. Highly recommended for any popular fiction collection. J.M. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 92]
