Not since his celebrated novel Money has Amis turned his focus on America to such remarkable effect. Fusing brilliant wordplay with all the elements of a classic whodunit, Amis exposes a world where surfaces are suspect (no matter how perfect), Where paranoia is justified (no matter how pervasive), and where power and price and pride are brought low by the hidden recesses of our humanity.

always looking for the next fabulous audiobook. I'm so glad to have found the audible website.
Listening to this book I was impressed by how much the voice of the narrator captured and even enhanced the character that she portrayed. Her voice brought in another dimension, with all the colours and character that a human voice can bring. Its a great illustration of why I have become so attatched to audio. I hope to hear other stories from her.
As well as great narration it was a suspenseful tale, and quite credible.
There is a problem in that the narrator appears to have difficulty in speaking in more than one 'voice'. This means that in two-person dialogues it is quite difficult to know which character is saying which words.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
