Manchester writes compellingly readable history which is as popular on audio as it is in print. This title, about Ferdinand Magellan's place at the beginning of the Renaissance, is currently on Books On Tape's best-seller list. Manchester's mix of interesting anecdotes, insightful observation and direct writing style speaks directly to his audience. With appropriate pauses, comfortable delivery and almost conversational inflections, Gardner brings life to the text in a manner that complements Manchester's writing. The result, both esthetically pleasing and intellectually challenging, will be enjoyed by many. S.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 93]
