by | Read by Chiwetel Ejiofor

Fantasy • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Chiwetel Ejiofor narrates an intricate fantasy presented in the form of diary entries. An unnamed narrator chronicles his daily life in the house, keeping track of tides, the migration of birds, and the visits he is paid by The Other. Gradually, he comes to learn that his world is not at all as it seems. Ejiofor carefully establishes the narrator’s reality— and then just as carefully shatters it as the self-doubt and anxiety the narrator suffers rise to the surface. When the narrator endures great mental anguish due to a sudden and unexpected betrayal, Ejiofor’s grief and despair are raw and gutting. A nuanced performance of a deeply complex work.
