Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Rudnicki provides his melodious baritone…He keeps his characterizations diverse but restrained [and] provides a fine, laid-back performance. Even more enjoyable are the commentaries found on disc five.” Publishers Weekly
“Stefan Rudnicki treats this pulpy novelization of the original Kong film with respect, allowing listeners to appreciate on its own terms the familiar story…Rudnicki’s deep, craggy voice…and seriousness help one past the campy or dated parts.” AudioFile
“King Kong still holds the force of its raw simplicity. More myth than monster, Kong suffers the fate of the classic tragic hero, destroyed by his own nobility. High-tech civilization overwhelms his primitive power. Beauty kills the beast.” Jack Williamson, author of The Humanoids
“[This] audiobook is certainly special…I loved the commentary included…a true treasure for the ages. Kudos to Blackstone for giving us this Special Edition.” SFFAudio.com
