Herman Wouk’s MARJORIE MORNINGSTAR is timeless. At its most basic, the book, published in 1955, is the story of a young Jewish woman who dreams of becoming an actress, yet who must surrender to a life as a suburban housewife and mother. Gabra Zackman has a sweet, warm voice, which she mixes with a seriousness that complements Wouk’s prose and dialogue. Zackman’s ability to change tone, from high-pitched to deep and feminine to breathless, brings the book and its personalities to life. Listening is a journey that takes more than 28 hours, but with Zackman at the mike, every page brings a new reason to continue. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2013]
