Each part of this novel about success, spiritualism, mental health, and the soul is expertly delivered by a different narrator who perfectly projects the story's tone and energy. Samuel West's melancholic, refined air and emotional register reflect Geoffrey's experiences as a British schoolteacher turned concentration camp escapee. Christian Rodska's lower-class British accent and animated pacing telegraph Billy's rise from workhouse poverty to literate family man in Victorian England. Lucy Briers plays storyteller for Elena's journey from farm girl to famous scientist in a futuristic Europe. Sian Thomas's soft voice and spot-on French accent are perfect for Jeanne's transformation from Catholic orphan to maid for a mid-nineteenth-century bourgeois family. Rupert Degas seamlessly switches from male to female, British to American in the final story of American hippie Anya's musical career. C.B.L.
