by | Read by Humphrey Bower

Fiction • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

The gritty details of this story are not for the faint of heart. The adult content, including sexual exploitation and the harsh conditions of migrant life, is delivered with deep feeling by Humphrey Bower. He captures the novel's African narrator with a gentle, poetic cadence that is pleasing to the ear and evokes sympathy for his convoluted journey. He also keeps up with the wide cast of characters by giving each his or her own distinctive verbal element through a difference in pitch or tone. This is a story of misuse, mistrust, and exploitation, and Bower inspires all the right emotions in his heartfelt reading. M.R. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2012]
