In his crafty and whimsical way, Klosterman delves into the world of doubt and asks how sure we should be of things we take for granted, such as the laws of physics, the merits of literature, or how well we actually remember anything. Though he narrates the introduction and afterword, Fiona Hardingham performs the main part of this book. Her youthful, English-accented delivery is lively and engaging, and she proves capable with the quirks and pivots of Klosterman's style. However, Klosterman's distinct and slightly nasally voice, with its own emphasis and idiosyncrasies, might actually be better paired with the book than Hardingham's voice. She communicates the points and captures the nuance, but Klosterman adds a bit more nonconformity and meaningful reflection, further enlivening the production.
