Veteran Australian actor Jack Thompson narrates his first audiobook with dazzling success. Listeners will be immediately drawn into the sad but compelling tale of a father who is seeking to recover the bodies of his three sons who were all lost on the same day in the battles of Gallipoli. The clash of cultures—Turkish, British, and Australian, the heartbreaking losses on all sides, and the slow resolution are vividly created. Thompson’s subtle performance expresses the fierce passions of the characters with powerful resonance. The audiobook simply sweeps you up and tangles you in an extraordinary story. The history is enlightening, especially for Americans, who may not know the scope of this WWI tragedy, but the universality is unmistakable. Powerful to the end, this is a listening saga that stays with you. R.F.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2016 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2016]
