VINCENT AND THEO The Van Gogh Brothers

by | Read by Phil Fox

Young Adult Young Adult • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Phil Fox weaves facts and anecdotes with aplomb as he delivers the biographies of brothers Vincent and Theo van Gogh. Fox’s delivery is crisp and precise, a style that goes well with the present-tense writing. The audiobook has the structure of a walk through an art gallery, and Fox helps listeners enter the scenes. This dynamic biography includes imaginative portrayals and quotes from letters, both of which illuminate important moments in the brothers’ lives. Fox’s narration makes the story and its time period clear. In addition, he stresses emotional experiences such as the van Gogh parents’ devotion, Theo’s frustration with Vincent’s eccentricity, the brothers’ shared passion for art, and the many struggles they both have with depression, love, and art.
