Narrator Roxana Ortega's style is an ideal match for Egan's latest. Using a series of interconnected vignettes, the author demonstrates how each of us stars in our own life story while also making appearances—from co-star to cameo—in the stories of others. Ortega's soft, almost whispery, presentation mirrors Egan's subtle character development while giving the listener the sense of confidences shared, reflections examined, and triumphs and weaknesses revealed. Ortega also proves herself adept at shifts of voice and emotion as the text swings through the multiple points of view of memorable characters over a fifty-year time span. A captivating listening experience. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2010]
