T.D.M.
AudioFile, April 2009

An unexpected turn of events transforms the novelty of life on the high seas into a nightmare. Going to sea with his best friend, the story’s first-person narrator, Arthur Pym, travels the world and miraculously survives abominable horrors—mutiny, shipwreck, abandonment at sea, and hostile natives in the Galapagos. Narrator Adam Sims has a youthful, slightly raspy voice that ideally suits the young narrator. His articulate enunciation and measured pace are consistent throughout the story. To accommodate Poe’s lengthy tangents, Sims shifts his tone to match the formality of the historical asides. Through his enthusiastic narration, Sims gives the listener an exciting rendering of Poe’s only novel.
