Combining a British accent with seamless Italian pronunciation, Jonathan Aris's slow and steady narration lends an appropriate tone of dignity and melancholy to Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's account of a lifetime of memories and tragedies. The last Prince of Lampedusa shares thoughts on mid-twentieth-century social change, which are intertwined with those of his own mortality, as he works through the process of writing his acclaimed--and sole--novel, THE LEOPARD. Aside from a few voices that sound caricatured, Aris's delivery is smooth and enveloping in this clear, well-mixed audio production.
