Classics • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1948

Narrator Richard Poe's voice blends seamlessly with Steinbeck's in this account of his travels through Russia with war photographer Robert Capa following WWII. Thanks to Poe's consistent pace, careful diction, and friendly tone, both longtime Steinbeck fans and new ones will find themselves comfortable with his performance. His subtle emphasis on the more serious aspects of Russian travel nicely balances the humor of certain events, and it might be surprising to some how much humor is to be found in Steinbeck's travels. The only downside to the audiobook format is the absence of the photographs that appear in the print version, but this is no reflection on Poe's performance or the value of the audiobook.
