CHASE YOUR SHADOW The Trials of Oscar Pistorius

by | Read by Gideon Emery

Contemporary Culture • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

The world was shocked when South African Paralympian and international track star Oscar Pistorius, a double amputee nicknamed the "Blade Runner" because of his prosthetic racing legs, shot his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, claiming that he mistook her for a nighttime invader in his Pretoria home. Narrator Gideon Emery recounts the background story in an agreeable British accent and employs a South African accent for Pistorius and his family, Steenkamp's family, and those involved in his legal case, as well as Pistorius's acquaintances of other nationalities. In Emery's portrayal, Pistorius sounds rather feeble throughout as he is overwhelmed by his situation. Emery also gives a higher-pitched South African voice to for Judge Masipa for the extended passage in which she unveils her ruling. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2015]
