Dion Graham nails the narration of Agard’s loving tribute to books and their history. With warmth and pride, Graham portrays “Book,” who narrates his own autobiography. From hieroglyphics and cuneiform to movable type and e-books; from cultures European, Asian, Aztec, and more,“Book” shares his transformations over the years. Quotes from well-known literary people pepper the story. Graham has the style of a storyteller with a myriad of tools at his disposal, including a rich voice, variations in tempo, and volume changes, all used to make information clear and emotions palpable. Listeners of all ages will come away with a deeper appreciation of books. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2015]
