It's a unique, strange, unexpected, multilayered story.
She's one of the best narrators I have listened to (and I have listened to many).
Yes. Unfortunately I didn't have time, but I was almost wishing for a long drive, so I could continue listening.
The Art of Peeling an orange is a beautifully written literary fiction novel. Having Chris Williams narrate it simply brought the characters to life. I have been a fan of her narration since I heard Chris narrate Jericho. Highly recommended audiobook and novel.
