This is one of those trendy books that pretends to both make fun of and sympathize with the wealthy urban class. What makes matters even more complicated is that the main character is not really likable. In any case, narrator Susan Denaker has a comfortable, pleasant, rich voice that, together with some subtle characterizations, keeps the story moving even under its own weight. Denaker has quite a range of emotions, as well as the ability to glide effortlessly from male to female and from child to adult without losing focus. She reads a bit too quickly at the beginning but settles down nicely as she progresses through the book. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
