The story, although dark and troubling, is moving. The writing is a bit affected -- the author tries too hard to be expressive and insightful. The same over-effort can be seen in the production as well. The narrators?f whispery voice is too dramatic and the musical interludes remind me more of Public Radio's Mystery Theater than a narrated book. The overall effect is the feeling of someone trying to manipulate the listener?fs emotions. This is a book that I would recommend, but it could be much better if the author and producers didn't try so hard for the dramatic and theatrical.
