THE LIFE BEFORE HER EYES

by | Read by Carrington MacDuffie

Fiction • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

From Carrington MacDuffie's first words, spoken in the tone of a preppy sorority girl, listeners are located squarely in Middle America. What's more, it's not as boring as one might expect. The combination of writer and narrator sucks us in. The story itself makes quick shifts back and forth over a twenty-year time span in which the protagonist, Diana, grows from an adolescent who sees her best friend murdered in a high school massacre to a grown woman who becomes a mother. MacDuffie handles the transitions with surprising ease. One wishes the novel itself offered the same pleasures, but after what seems endless pursuit of its heavy-handed theme, the last hour of the story strains too hard for the surreal.
