Peach has been brutally attacked. In this audiobook, her subsequent pain is rendered into something both horrible and beautiful, which is hard to explain. Yasmin Page's narration embraces Glass's poetic skill as she delivers the author's descriptive words and distinctive cadences. Indeed, there is a poetry to this novel that is simultaneously ideal for audio and sometimes distracting. When the diction and syntax work thoughtfully in tandem, the effect is mesmerizing, thanks to Page's lilting voice. Some moments, though, rise to distracting heights in their abstraction, and even Page's skill as a performer can't bring the listener back to the story without some effort on the parts of both parties. Page is forceful and precise in her performance, paying close attention to the artistry entwined in these sentences. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2018]
