Publishers WeeklyNeville Jason, the reigning master of the classics audiobook, returns with his reading of the final volumes of White's beloved version of King Arthur and the Round Table. His plummy tones are as pleasing as ever and give White's epic its proper heroic English texture. Surprising, however, are the occasional eruptions of modernity-of contemporary speech and intonation-that emerge in Jason's reading. The effect, while disconcerting, is also pleasing, giving Arthur, Lancelot and Guinevere, and their knotty romantic travails, a surprisingly up-to-date gloss. Another fine entry in Naxos' ever-growing Complete Classics collection.
