Malcolm Hillgartner's narration is an excellent match to this audiobook. Unger offers an intriguing study of the young Pablo Picasso and his journey to become the iconic cubist painter. Unger focuses on Picasso's 1907 work "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon," arguably his first cubist piece, which radically altered the art world. This study of Picasso also offers an introspective look at his history and psyche, creating an interesting picture of the man behind the artist. Hillgartner's deep, crisp voice complements the historical information, and his measured pace helps keep the listener focused. He admirably tackles both French and Spanish pronunciations, which occur frequently, and adds passion to Picasso's quotes. Hillgartner's skillful narration helps Unger's work shine.
