Narrator Brian Nishii showcases his versatility with a lively and entertaining performance of this contemporary retelling of THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV. For 35 years, the Chao family has successfully run an Americanized Chinese restaurant in Haven, Wisconsin. Nonetheless, they are still viewed as outsiders and subjected to racism. Nishii nails his characterization of the abrasive family patriarch, Leo Chao, with a gruff timbre and a sneering tone. After Leo is found dead during the holidays, his three sons, each with a potential motive, are put on trial for murder. Nishii expressively provides distinct voices and personalities for the sons and expertly captures the story's sardonic humor. Listeners will find this slow-burning novel enhanced by Nishii's skilled narration. V.T.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2022]
