If you listen to this audiobook to hear the title story, you won’t be disappointed. But it’s fortunate that you’ll get to listen to 24 other wonderful stories before hearing “The Lottery.” With masterful performances, narrators Cassandra Campbell, Gabrielle de Cuir, Kathe Mazur, and Stefan Rudnicki bring to life the diverse characters and tales that make this collection so powerful and entrancing. Each narrator brings a different but highly complementary style to the material, giving life and meaning to Jackson’s characters and allowing listeners to appreciate the breadth of this work. Campbell's performance of “The Lottery” is particularly satisfying. She uses an even, almost calming, tone that contrasts with terror of the story and allows it to develop to its unforgettable conclusion. As for the other stories, each qualifies as a superb second best. D.J.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2015]
