Fiction • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Nikki Zakocs performs the charming story of a young woman named Luisa and the colorful residents of her German hometown. When Selma, Luisa's grandmother, dreams of a creature called an okapi, everyone knows that someone in their village will die. What follows is the story of a young bookseller, a very large dog, an optician who can never quite find the right time to tell Selma he loves her, and a Japanese Buddhist with a German name. Zakocs's bright inflection and thoughtful character work make this audiobook sound like a fairy tale. Her German accent is solid. With a delightful story and Zakocs's charismatic narration, this audiobook can be enjoyed again and again. V.B. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2021]
