Seldom does it happen that each of the thousands of words in a novel seems as inevitable and well chosen as the words in a poem. So it is with Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison's SONG OF SOLOMON. Reader Lynn Thigpen reads with deliberate care. Her studied enunciation allows Morrison's precisely crafted phrases to create their own focus. Thigpen's rich, honeyed voice is best in its lower ranges, good casting for a book that features so many male view-points yet is written by a woman. Wisely, Thigpen varies inflection and dialect more than pitch to create characters. S.P. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
