This novel is populated with a wide range of characters, and Adjoa Andoh infuses each with animation. She's especially good at giving the dialogue of each principal a unique tone, pitch, and pace. And she delivers the lilting Ghanaian-accented English with a light enough touch to make it reminiscent of real speech. For the listener who is used to a more restrained narration of literary fiction, this lively edition may seem overdone in some places. For others who enjoy more dramatic renderings, the moments of high drama--and there are many--are brought to life, complete with the sounds of tearful anguish or elevated volume. Overall, Andoh's narration is crisp, well paced, and engaging. M.R. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2013]
