HERO The Life and Legend of Lawrence of Arabia

by | Read by Robin Sachs

Biography & Memoir • 14 hrs. • Abridged • © 2010

Thomas Edward Lawrence, aka Lawrence of Arabia, stood 5’ 5” tall and was blond and scholarly. Yet Mao, Ho Chi Minh, and Castro consulted his SEVEN PILLARS OF WISDOM, a book on war, as they planned their strategies. Narrator Robin Sachs manages to sound old-fashioned yet fresh and modern. Sadly, events and guerrilla warfare in the Middle East have changed little since Lawrence united Arab tribes against Turkey, becoming a WWI hero. Sachs perfectly captures the regal, adventurous yet humble manner that enabled Lawrence to both influence and blend in, depending upon the situation. There is also a moving humanity to this solitary man as he battles his domineering mother. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2010]
