Imagine the coincidence, or cosmic convergence if you believe in such things, that would bring these two era-defining writers together, and you have the makings of a terrific, if jarring, audiobook. It's a double biography of their war years and the next two decades, and the story of their friendship does not end well. Narrator Dean Temple has a pleasant, light voice that doesn't really meld with the book's tone. Temple varies his reading to keep the story moving, but he speeds up when he should be more deliberate and noticeably loses the ends of words. He also approaches the book dispassionately, reading all the words, but without appreciable feeling. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2017]
