Joyce Saricks
Booklist, October 2012

In this gracefully abridged recording of Haggard’s classic adventure, listeners become immersed into an exotic world of magic, mystery, and danger. Cambridge professor Ludwig Horace Holly recounts the thrilling adventure…Homewood’s deep, sonorous tones capture the gravity of the tale, and his precise British accent complements the nineteenth-century prose. He initially lightens his register for Ayesha and then terrifyingly makes her sound older to indicate her demise. Homewood excellently reads the endnotes… © 2012 Booklist



Los Angeles Times, December 2011

Homewood employs a proper British pronunciation that fits the mood and time period of Haggard’s classic tale of a Cambridge academic’s adventure in search of a legendary African queen. © 2011 Los Angeles Times




Susan C. Awe
AudioFile, December 2011

Homewood exquisitely captures the wonders and horrors…His calm, well-paced reading adds a dimension of reality to a tale of natives, murder, and rage. Modulations of tone and inflection add to a performance that keeps listeners entranced. © 2011 AudioFile Read complete review
