A new audio version of this classic novel is good news; no matter at what age you read or reread it, it has something new to offer you. Wilder sets his iconic story in the eighteenth century in colonial Peru at the moment one of the astounding rope bridges that crisscrossed the Andean gorges of the Inca Empire collapses. The novel examines the lives of the five people who die together that day, tracing what exactly led each one to be there at that moment, and asking what, if anything, it meant. This edition includes a welcome afterword addressing the origins and long life of this enduring perennial. Thom Rivera's acting is fine, and his Spanish pronunciations lovely, though in other languages he's less reliable. B.G. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2020]
