Fiction • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator George Blagden maintains a consistently calm tone as he takes listeners through all the uncertainties and dualities in this mesmerizing and addictive audiobook. The story shifts between two time periods: 1988 and 2016. Nothing is quite what it seems, and listeners do not know who or what is reliable. Employing subtle American, English, and German accents and quietly expressive tonal variations, Blagden creates original and compelling characters. The story revolves around Saul Adler, a historian. Saul is a bit of a cipher, but Blagden fully expresses his vulnerabilities and confusion. Themes of self-image, beauty, gender fluidity, fatherhood, and carelessness in relationships are explored in this intriguing listen. M.J. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2019]
