Suprb narration of a difficult book
The story itself is a serious and complex interweaving of dream, reality, love, violence rejection and acceptance as the 20 year old hero finds himself and his past. Reading the story aloud presents the narrator with challenges found in few other works and William Rycroft could not have done the job better, as his vivacity, characterisation and clarity lifts this book from page to the reader. I know I shall come back to this book. If it is to the print rather than the audio version, Rycroft's voice will never be far from my mind.
