Amy Landon offers an adept narration of this audiobook, a novel that offers an interesting premise but ultimately gets bogged down in repetition and contradiction. Annie and Will are Americans in 1990s Budapest. The parents of an infant, they also aspire to business success and personal enrichment. However, they're getting weary from doors that are closed to them. Landon creates a lovely balance between the empathetic narrator she is and the distressed protagonists she portrays, her voice shifting gracefully as she maneuvers Annie and Will's personal and professional complexities. Her pacing and dialogue are well considered, and the overall effect is worth a listen. As mysteries arise, the listener is likely to stick with STRANGERS IN BUDAPEST as much for Landon's narration as for the story itself.
