Issues of colonialism and postcolonial living collide with the heartbreak of an outwardly loveless marriage. Narrator Adjoa Andoh becomes each of the characters in turn, flawlessly giving voice to a variety of accents—from the languid and lilting cadence of the natives of Trinidad to the clipped and imperial English of the main character, Sabine. In addition to being a virtual chameleon in the realm of accents, Andoh portrays both men and women with equal ease and breathes life into each character so that the listener is apt to forget that anyone is narrating at all. As a result, THE WHITE WOMAN ON THE GREEN BICYCLE is less of a listen and more of an experience. J.L.K. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2011]
