This hour-by-hour reconstruction of a single historical day gathers force and immediacy with Sasha Higgins's passionate delivery. On July 28, 1794, a spontaneous uprising overthrew Maximilien Robespierre, the French Revolution's most radical leader, and the next day he followed so many of his opponents to the guillotine. Thus ended the Revolution. This momentous day becomes a prism for surveying the entire revolution, and the detail is quite impressive--but for many listeners it will be quite overwhelming. Higgins's ease and command of French flavor the narrative and capture much of the spirit of the age. Her English is perhaps too richly British, her pace a bit too measured. But her feel for the material, for the period and its essential vocabulary and spirit, is matchless. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2022]
