Fiction • 19.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

Simon Vance crafts subtle characters and an engaging narrative as he delivers this mysterious novel, often considered one of Ishiguro's most elusive. With his understated reading and careful pacing, Vance maintains Ishiguro's curious sense of the uncanny while allowing his eccentric characters to emerge with dynamism and clarity. From the protagonist's confusion and unease to the supporting characters' unfulfilled dreams and waning ambition, each new voice is distinct and delivered with empathy. It's a listen that requires a little patience--so disorientating is the novel itself--but thanks to a steady hand and subtle interpretations, Vance's narration ensures that listeners' perseverance is rewarded.
