This novel, the basis for the popular film and TV series, is particularly difficult to narrate because so many listeners have seen Hooker’s characters and have a preconceived sense of how each should sound. Narrator Johnny Heller overcomes these obstacles easily, and his performance is terrific. Heller’s voice is somewhat low, and his style a bit dry; both are a good fit for the gruff and unrefined characters who give MASH its charm. In particular, Heller brings Hawkeye, Radar, and the other members of the 4077th to life without concern for their prior iterations and without overpowering the material. Whether listeners are new to MASH or loyal fans, the result is worth hearing. D.J.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2014]
