Alice Chambers is trapped in a life she doesn't know she hates, with a wealthy but wandering husband, a slightly crazy best friend, and no real self to speak of. When husband Joe is transferred to New York because of an infidelity with a co-worker, Alice is less than thrilled about making the move. The change ultimately transforms her life and those in her circle. Elizabeth Sastre reads the novel as though your best girlfriend is telling the story. She is warm, com-passionate, funny, and decid-edly human in her delivery, making each character quirky and likable, regardless of whether she is reading parts for Alice, Joe, or his mistress. Green fans will love her performance, and those new to Green's work should find these characters endearing. H.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
