Narrator Marie Hoffman's vocal tone may sound gentle and innocent, but her performance of this exceptional audiobook is anything but. She presents this material with the clarity and confidence necessary for listeners to understand the author's enlightening research and insights. The scope and organization of this research are impressive. Literary and cultural references abound as the author explains what her surveys and other research reveal about romantic love--why we fall victim to it, how it affects people, how we recover from it, and how it can morph into a healthy romantic partnership. Much of this writing is sensitive, lyrical, even sentimental. Here, too, Hoffman's interpretations are faithful to those threads but never overplayed. She never allows the sentimental elements to overshadow the intellectual bounty. T.W. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2019]
