John Franklyn-Robbins gives a fully voiced, unabridged performance of THE SECRET PILGRIM, which is, without reservation, worthy of the novel's excellence. Much of the power of Franklyn-Robbins's reading comes from the feeling that he is talking to you alone, providing intimacy through undistorted sound. The recording technique is perfect for the intended tone. He has an excellent vocal range and wonderful voices, and he gives Ned an appropriately worldly, battle-weary voice. Franklyn-Robbins's rendition of the forty-page dialogue between the interrogating Ned and the pathetically lonely Cyril Frewin is a stunning example of how oral interpretation can enhance one's understanding and appreciation of a text.
