There is no doubt that reader Jeremy Irons truly understands the book he brings to life in this recording. Irons’s genteel growl reverberates between ironic and conversational, husky and refined, befitting this story. The reader sees the Marchmain family through the eyes of first-person narrator Charles Ryder and is treated to an interesting view of aristocracy and decadence in early twentieth-century England. Irons shines as both reader and actor, making subtle but valuable vocal alterations for each character. Ryder’s account of the charming Marchmains is entertaining, and Irons’s portrayal of Ryder is a joy to listen to. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
