Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Will Patton

Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1970

Available for the first time in audio format, Dickey's classic novel tells the story of four best buddies who venture into the Georgia wilderness in search of an adventure. What they find, however, is nothing short of a nightmare. Will Patton's narration is nothing short of haunting. His Southern tone steadily declines from that of a man pondering all that is possible in the world to that of a shattered soul. Dickey's intensity is present from the very first sentence, which itself is a precursor to the terror that is to come: "It unrolled slowly, forced to show its colors." At that moment, listeners are inclined to step into the canoe alongside the adventurers and float gently toward damnation. L.B.
