Much as she did in her acclaimed first novel, PREP, Sittenfeld places a troubled, not always likable young woman at the heart of her story, and the results are fascinating. Hannah's search for the elusive title character leads her through an assortment of relationships over the course of her youth, and Susan Denaker's unassuming performance captures this journey perfectly. Denaker's skill as a performer is evident, but even more appropriate for this work is the neutrality of her approach. As a listener, one is able to decide for oneself if Hannah will be a sympathetic character. This audiobook is the total package: finely written, beautifully performed, and ultimately satisfying.
