Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ari Fliakos

Fiction • 19 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

This audiobook's excellence makes its nearly 19-hour time span fly by. Ari Fliakos is superb in this complex yet supremely accessible performance. He lends his skill to the depiction of Jack and Elizabeth's relationship and all its backstories and subplots. No nuance of this novel escapes Fliakos: satirical social commentary, tender love story, hilarious missteps of modern life, heartbreaking loss . . . The full kaleidoscope of the human experience simply sings when rendered by his voice. As the plot leaps across time periods and back, Fliakos's confident pace keeps everything steady. Lively dialogue among the characters is rendered with just the right amount of wit and personality. Hill's often profound words and Fliakos's expert performance combine to make this an outstanding listening experience. L.B.F.
