Audible Editor Reviews

"Between our convictions and our feelings there is no good understanding," intones the clear and serious voice of Walter Zimmerman. In this audiobook, the listener is brought to a rustic bench in the early evening where the mysterious Irene Marlowe, whose eyes "denied attention to all else", is made to tell her suitor the story of how she became insane.

Zimmerman is joined by the mature and equally clear voice of Donna Barkman in the performing of this early tale of horror by Ambrose Bierce, a precursor and spiritual father to later masters like Stephen King and Ray Bradbury. Pioneers, the wild American wilderness, and a pair of glowing eyes are employed to lead the listener to an unforgettable conclusion.
