Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile

Hijack a New York subway, hold 16 passengers hostage, collect a million dollars ransom from New York City--then implement a daring escape plan. What a caper! THE TAKING OF PELHAM 123 is presented, for the most part, as a narrative that delves into the thoughts and fears of the crooks, hostages, cops, and subway authorities involved. The novel was originally published in 1974, the era of Black Power, the antiwar movement, and the emerging sexual revolution, and these trends are reflected in the story and characters. Mark Bramhall is a master of modulation who provides just the right tone and pace to give listeners real insights into the lives and characters of the people caught up in this tragic affair. His cover-to-cover narration is smooth, engaging, and genuine. T.J.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
