Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A piece of perfect storytelling.” Robert Louis Stevenson
“John Lee imbues this classic with exactly the right balance of solemnity and compassion. His light accents for characters of various nationalities give them individual personalities without overdoing them in the slightest. Lee works with Dumas’s text to give each character complexity and emotion. The listener regrets the story’s end, wishing to live with Edmund and his adventures just a little longer. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“From the first page of the novel, Dumas separates the ‘good guys’ from the bad and pulls the reader into the drama, squarely on Edmond’s side…Lee’s deep muscular voice works well for this swashbuckler. While he vocally differentiates characters only lightly, his reading is highly expressive, his pace brisk, his tone rich with foreboding.” Kliatt (audio review)
