What a collection! The concept of this audio presentation may seem random or even confusing at first, but many will recognize its structure from William Shakespeare's AS YOU LIKE IT. In his "All the world's a stage" soliloquy, Shakespeare maps out the seven stages of man's life. So, too, does this compilation of great writings read by some of the finest British actors and speakers. The resounding voice of Sir Ian McKellen serves as the tour guide, signifying each transition to a new age. In fact, the voices of all the performers here--from Dame Judi Dench's distinctive authority to the familiar rolling tones of John Cleese--are magnificent. This audio presentation is a great concept with a phenomenal delivery. R.A.P. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
