This audiobook is a perfect storm in which the beautiful yet brutal powers of author Mark Haddon and narrator Tim McInnerny collide in an awesome display. The emotional center of the work is a girl whose harsh entry into the world merely foreshadowed an even more disturbing life to come. She escapes that life by way of story, and we soon enter into her own very personal retelling of Shakespeare's PERICLES. If this doesn't sound like a “light beach listen,” you're right. But you WILL listen on the beach. And in your car. And on your run. And anywhere and any chance you get. Because once you begin the voyage that is this novel, McInnerny’s gale-force narration will drive you on. K.W.
