It's a good story to listen to because it lends itself to the audio format. Be careful, though -- you may miss your exit on the highway because you're so involved in the drama.
Baldwin is one of my favorites because he always is able to lull the reader into a sense of comfort before unleashing a phrase, sentence, or passage that rises above the fray and cuts to the core of an emotion. He blends the matter-of-fact with the lyrical so well.
The last scene between David and Giovanni is very well done. Baldwin takes what could have been a trite, commonplace circumstance and makes it into something much rich and less generic.
An alternative title? Perhaps: Escaping Myself.
I enjoyed the plot, the twists and turns. I did not like the readers, especially the woman narrator.
I would have gotten different narrators.
Flynn can't write men.
