Mary Roach
AudioFile, January 2014

John Chancer’s narration does justice to the latest volume by a great contemporary novelist. This masculine story is told from the point of view of a male protagonist, and Chancer’s baritone is easy on the ear. His gentle cadence reflects the romance between the main character and his love interest. In this story of love and loss, two people are bound together by both their passion and their memories. Chancer delivers the first-person introspection of the character Toru with a vocal variety that keeps his stream-of-consciousness monologues engaging. The overall effect is engaging—it’s as if the characters were speaking directly to the listener. © 2014 AudioFile
