Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Martin Jarvis

Fiction • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

While The Third Man is recognized by any film buff as one of Orson Welles's great roles--Greene's novella is less well known. It was written in anticipation of the film, with Graham going directly to the screenplay from this original story. In Martin Jarvis's hands, or voice, really, the death of Harry Lime in postwar Vienna takes on a vivid, sinister cloak. Setting the scene, Jarvis never misses an opportunity to accentuate Greene's elegant descriptions, making the nuances hard-edged and poetic at the same time. Jarvis excels at making each player distinct, but never lets any one overshadow the compelling drama of secrets, searches and shifting allegiances. Smooth and precise, Jarvis brings Greene's story alive in exquisite detail and with superb characterizations. R.F.W.
