What a fine tale of two cities this tape offers. A colorful Italian village and a proper English town are the backdrop of this novel written in 1905. Forster's ability to paint pictures with words is matched by Edward Petherbridge's intelligent interpretation. He makes us believe in the cast of characters without any histrionic vocal leaps. In fact, he does very little outwardly to change his tone; what the listener hears is masterful control of concentration and talent. Petherbridge is Lord Peter Wimsey on PBS, but there is no shred of that character in this splendid work. J.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 93]
