Synopsis: The romance between Oscar Hopkins, an awkward theologian who supports himself at Oxford by betting on horses, and Lucinda, a teenage heiress equally fond of gambling, scandalizes Victorian English society

Review: Ralph Fiennes, who stars in the film version of Oscar and Lucinda, reads a nicely abridged version of Peter Carey's Booker Prize-winning novel. The audio captures much of the book's vibrant prose, delicately eliminating minor characters and digressions. Lucinda's sudden appearance in London is even more abrupt and confusing than in the book, but Fiennes's carefully clipped British pronunciation helps make things clearer. Not only is he a better actor on tape than in the movie, but he becomes a superb storyteller as well, evoking multiple characters with supreme mastery of pitch, pace, and tone.
