THE DOUBLE BIND asks a lot of its listener. It asks that one suspend reality enough to believe that the characters from Fitzgerald's classic THE GREAT GATSBY are actual people who interacted with its own characters, becoming part of a mystery the protagonist must solve. The premise is enough to keep one interested, and Susan Denaker's performance is a reasonable one. She stumbles with minor characters such as children and the elderly, lending their voices stereotypical twists, but overall her reading is fine. In fact, the audiobook is exactly that: fine. It promises great drama but falls short by overuse of narrative and slow-paced delivery of action. A listen to this audiobook is diverting, but not riveting.
