You'd be forgiven for comparing narrator Marin Ireland and author Fredrik Backman to the great hockey tandem Mark Messier and Wayne Gretzky. Like Messier and Gretzky, Ireland and Backman are quite the formidable pair (as was discovered when Ireland narrated Backman's bestseller, BEARTOWN.) Backman's new novel picks up where BEARTOWN left off, and Ireland doesn't miss a beat (or open net, if you'd prefer a sports analogy). She once again gives an unforced, nuanced take on characters that include adolescents struggling to find their way, a crusty old barkeep, a power-hungry politician, and a married couple hoping to reconnect after terrible tragedies. If you enjoyed Ireland's work in BEARTOWN, you will not be disappointed hearing her read US AGAINST YOU. J.P.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2018]
