Narrator Callie Beaulieu performs Schaub's memoir of spending a year trying to clean out her "Hell Room" with a winning, smart confidence. It's a fitting choice to characterize a woman who clearly relishes taking on big projects. Schaub isn't all confidence, though, and Beaulieu heightens Schaub's more vulnerable moments--as when she reveals some of the more grizzly contents of the Hell Room with a slightly muted voice, hesitations, and pauses. Beaulieu conveys a sense of excitement and interest in her narration of Schaub's research, particularly when Schaub gets into the psychology of amassing too much stuff and the fine line between clutter and hoarding. Entertaining and practical, this memoir will resonate with listeners and inspire decluttering projects. A.F. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2017]
