How splendid that the audiobook celebrating the titular character, who is a storyteller, is offered to us by two talented narrators. Cynthia Farrell and Timothy Pabon share the narrative responsibility here, and the result is outstanding. Farrell's performance is richly textured and brimming with enthusiasm. Her voice has a resonant quality that gives it depth; her narration of Allende's novel is nothing short of inspired. For his part, Pabon's sections are equally pleasing to listen to; indeed, his is the voice one thinks of when imagining an audiobook performance--crisply enunciated, well paced, and sleekly professional. What's more, the youthful energy of his delivery keeps him from sounding predictable. Allende fans and newcomers alike will love this audio partnership. L.B.F.
