The Snows of Kilimanjaro

Ernest Hemingway, Author, Charlton Heston, Performed by Caedmon $14.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-06-145784-5
Charlton Heston's 1998 recording of Hemingway's classic 1938 short story makes its CD debut a decade later. The story itself needs no introduction. This tale of man versus nature, and in turn himself, is a theme Hemingway repeatedly analyzed and returned to throughout his career. The narration doesn't get much better than this, with Heston offering a stern, compelling reading that breathes new life into the material. He offers a truly surprising reading that is underplayed, never going over the top or unnecessarily overemphasizing the prose. Heston's believability offers a slightly different take on the story, a classic tale that demands repeated listenings.
