"Take a minute to consider a gift that hasnÂt gone out of style in more than 200 years." -- Wall Street Journal
"Who needs play-stations when you can give the kids Thomas Jefferson?" --Independent (U.K.)
The Declaration of Independence gets a stirring reading from Frank Langella, one that brings alive all the emotions our Founding Fathers must have felt when breaking free of England. Boyd Gainess reading of the Constitution doesnt fare as well, despite his efforts to give it a thoughtful reading that gives listeners plenty of time to ponder its points. It sounds like Gaines is reading a document that just wasnt meant to be read aloud. While important, the passage on the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court is almost guaranteed to bring yawns. At 48 minutes, the disc falls short of the hour promised on the package. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
