BIG BROTHER, a novel of food, fat, and families, is told from the perspective of Pandora, a very normal woman whose life undergoes some serious changes when her 386-pound brother arrives for an extended stay. Narrator Alice Rosengard's voice is a bit reedy, but it captures perfectly the everywoman essence of Pandora and the mixed emotions--bewilderment, disgust, sympathy, love--that her brother inspires in her. This first-person story has multiple characters, including Pandora's teenaged children, her rigid husband, and her loser father. Rosengard is able to maintain Pandora's voice while leaving no doubt when there is a change in speaker or scene. G.S.D. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2013]
