This story of a boy and his love affair with music is part mystery and part fictional memoir. Paul Michael's rich baritone infuses the narrative with the tinge of an accent, which is appropriate for a novel set in late-twentieth-century Spain. His smooth narration eases the listener into the complex narrative, which traces the revolution in Cuba against a context of shifting adult relationships retold from a child's perspective Michael's smooth, confident tone navigates this family epic with an almost melodic cadence, effectively expressing the novel's focus on a boy's love affair with music. Michael expertly captures the novel's sentimental themes. M.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
