This work unites three classics: (1) the novel by Leo Tolstoy that depicts the inner life of women with piercing realism; (2) the translation by Louise and Aylmer Maude of 1918 that still sounds fresh and contemporary; (3) the narration by David Horovitch that effects the range of characters with only the slightest modulation in his natural voice and the subtlest of vocal "gestures": an intake of breath here, a "tsk" there. It doesn't get better than this.
You will get thoroughly engrossed in the adventures of Ivan and September. The teens are admirably self-reliant, but oh, so young in their misjudgements. The book vividly describes the people and locale of coastal Alaska. This tale will appeal to both adults and children.
