Description

Legendary fantasy author and Newbery Award winner Ursula K. Le Guin transports listeners to exotic, fantastic worlds. Voices stars the people of Ansul, a town of scholars and traders conquered by the marauding Alds 17 years ago. When poet Orrec arrives in town, however, the people begin to garner the courage to rebel against their overlords. "... Le Guin's superior narrative voice and storytelling power make even small moments ring with truth ..."-School Library Journal, starred review

Professional reviews

"This sequel to GIFTS dusn't receive its due in this uneven audiobook. Listeners will empathize with Memer's desire to free her besieged city, Ansul, from the barbaric Alds. As the storyteller, Orrec, reminds the people of Ansul of its sovereignty, Memer discovers her future as her people's oracle. But these momentous events fall flat because narrator Melanie Martinez's undifferentiated characters make it impossible to tell who is speaking. In addition, listeners will strain to understand the intricate political plot as Martinez struggles through dense passages without changes in pitch or pacing. The book's excellent reputation can't redeem this uninspired audio version. C.A. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
