This stylishly written and razor-sharp novel of manners is perfect for audio since the achievement and pleasure of the book comes from the crossruff among four different voices as each tells his or her version of what happened in Siracusa. Michael and Lizzie, a childless couple from New York, travel to Italy with Taylor and Finn, a not-very-happy couple from Portland, Maine, with their young daughter, Snow. Finn and Lizzie know each other entirely too well, we soon learn, and none of the others have read each other well, not even beautiful, precocious, creepy little Snowy. Each adult is voiced by a different narrator, and all four hit their marks with wonderful crispness and understanding of the characters they play. An absolutely delicious listen. B.G.
