Ralph Fiennes, who stars in the film version of Oscar and Lucinda, reads a nicely abridged version of Peter Carey's Booker Prize-winning novel. The audio captures much of the book's vibrant prose, delicately eliminating minor characters and digressions. Lucinda's sudden appearance in London is even more abrupt and confusing than in the book, but Fiennes's carefully clipped British pronunciation helps make things clearer. Not only is he a better actor on tape than in the movie, but he becomes a superb storyteller as well, evoking multiple characters with supreme mastery of pitch, pace, and tone.From the Publisher:
Winner of the 1988 Booker Prize, this striking novel, set in Victorian England and Australia but told with a contemporary perspective, depicts the fatal and unrequited love shared by two remarkable misfits.
