A Wide-Ranging Travel Narrative
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Golden Voice narrator Arthur Morey easily assumes the persona of an especially well informed, keenly observant guide in this audiobook tour of the Adriatic countries, Adriatic. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff discuss the warmth and sophistication in Morey’s narration of Robert D. Kaplan’s work, focused around eastern Europe. His idiosyncratic delivery is made for the audiobook that travels around the Adriatic Sea from Venice, through the Balkan countries. In classical travel writing style, Kaplan comments on art and architecture and explores changes noticed over three decades of observation. An audiobook that fills in pieces in a very old and multifaceted history.
