Goblin Market
Author: Diane Zahler   Narrator: Tavia Gilbert
ISBN: 9781430145332
Price: $42.95
"Tavia Gilbert skillfully narrates this dark tale featuring two sisters in long-ago Poland, based on an 1862 poem by Christina Rossetti. ... Gilbert conveys Minka's illness by infusing her kind voice with a dreamlike detachment and portrays Lizzie with a lack of emotion. As the story progresses, Lizzie becomes more assertive but maintains her innate matter-of-fact tone. Gilbert also reflects Emil's mercurial temperament, speaking in enticing tones to Minka and to Lizzie with dismissiveness, disdain, and, finally, deadly menace. Haunting music during tense moments adds suspense." AudioFile Magazine
