Haddon, whose celebrated novel THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME became an instant classic, presents a short story collection united by themes of empathy and fearless honesty. Claire Corbett's performances are precise and bright; they feature careful pacing and enthusiasm that invites the listener into each story. Daniel Weyman's performances have a brisk, wry delivery; his tone serves to make the stories he animates even more lively. The nine stories vary widely in subject matter and impact. Listeners can expect each title to create a completely new experience as it presents yet another harrowing human trial. A few stories fall short, but this collection will make listeners willing to take each journey nonetheless. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2016]
