9780061134258: The Poseidon Adventure CD

The inspiration for the 2006 Warner Bros. film, Poseidon, Paul Gallico's The Poseidon Adventure is an intense and dramatic story about a gigantic ocean liner and its unimaginable final journey.

When a rogue wave capsizes the luxury cruise ship, a small group of survivors find themselves unlikely allies in a battle for their lives. As the unstable vessel rapidly fills with water each must draw on skills and strengths they didn't even know they possessed, fighting against time for their own survival and for each other.

Performed by Dylan Baker

About the Author:

Paul Gallico achieved national acclaim as a sportswriter and editor at the New York Daily News. He created the Golden Gloves amateur boxing competition and boxed with Jack Dempsey, swam against Johnny Weissmuller, golfed with Bobby Jones, and caught for Dizzy Dean. Gallico's first novel, The Snow Goose, has been continually in print since 1940 and a number of his stories and novels were adapted for the screen, the best-known being Lili and The Poseidon Adventure.

From AudioFile:

Narrator Dylan Baker does an impressive job with an array of characters, giving the impression of several narrators with Western and international accents. He also tries to engage listeners with a suspenseful narration, but he can't overcome a cast of unsympathetic characters and an unrealistic plot involving dying people aboard a sinking ship. Characters who are one-dimensional and have similar names are impossible to track. When the preacher onboard curses God before committing suicide, even Baker's skills can't save the scene. The rape of a young girl is delivered with sobs yet lacks credibility when Baker must deliver her thoughts of affection instead of fear. There is little to recommend in this audio, other than Baker himself. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
