Narrator Thérèse Plummer depicts every degree of anger, confusion, sorrow, and regret in this dramatic story of a dysfunctional family on the day of the death of the family patriarch. Listeners will be spellbound by Plummer's impressive skill in evoking the unrelenting outpouring of emotion throughout this highly charged and fast-paced audiobook. She creates penetrating portrayals of each character-- from the abusive father, Victor, and submissive mother, Barbra, to the snide, strong-willed daughter, Alex; the critical but absent son, Gary; and his nervous wife, Twyla. Frequent shifts in point of view, as well as illuminating flashbacks to earlier days, are masterfully conveyed by Plummer and help listeners piece together and appreciate this complex and absorbing narrative.
