Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Joe Barrett's delivery is perfect for this sad story of a man who discovers too late that there's more to life than making a living. He nails the tone of boredom that characterizes Anders. Tired of his financial career and upper-middle-class life, Anders has ditched his wife and grown children. There's little to like in Anders as he wallows in dissatisfaction with his life while lacking any energy to find purpose and meaning in it. As Barrett methodically recounts the depressing surface details of Anders's story, we never get to go deeper into his motivations to understand, or even care about, him and the people who surround him.
