This audiobook demonstrates the capacity of a narrator's voice to define--and redefine--the character of a text. Pearl Hewitt narrates with elegance and precision as the author traces the horse in human history--horses tamed, trained, subservient to man. Hewitt's accent is tearoom British, and she is quite adept at handling Forrest's multilingual vocabulary and rich descriptive prose. But Forrest's is a layered text, digressive and seemingly rambling, and her ideal narrator would possess a fuller range in pacing and tone, especially in differentiating the author's prose from her epigraphs and quoted passages. The narrative itself is colorful, informative, rich in detail--one can pick up for a half hour at any point. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
