This gem of an audiobook spans many continents and cultures yet celebrates the true definition of home. With the appropriate underlying mantra--“Laments always travel”--Howard and Julia Lament’s little family journeys around the world in search of a better life, living incredible experiences as it goes. The beauty of this audiobook lies in the author’s creativity and in the narrator’s attention to detail--Hagen’s family is an oddly universal one, in spite of all their eccentricities, and Richard Matthews masterfully brings each character to life, right down to the children’s accent shifts as they move from one country to the next. This audiobook is a wonderful treat, no matter what form the Laments within might take. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
