I don't like first-person narration, and I don't like books that change point of view in each chapter. This book had both, and I loved it! The weaving of the different perspectives built the story in a totally engrossing way.
Having different readers for the different voices worked really well. It was almost like a radio play.
What really makes this book, above all, is the lucid, playful and articulate writing. It is a pleasure to listen to.
Annette Bening may seem an odd choice for this very English novel, but she does an absolutely fantastic job. This is the very kind of book that works well in an audio version because you want to go slowly to savour the language.

I'm really enjoying this program for learning French. I have some basic French, so the first units are mostly review for me. But they are well done and short enough that I can always find 1/2 hour a day to keep up with it.
