This short novel is rife with riveting characters, a strong sense of place and setting, and a terrific overall reading by Joseph Pierre. The story of two brothers raised in Scarborough by their mother, and their two different routes in life, their very different personalities, and the effects they have on one another, bring this novel alive. The setting, and Chariandy's descriptions throughout of the community and place are compelling, too. This story and its characters linger long after you've finished hearing it.

I loved Maggie Gyllenhaal's reading of Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina. While it is true you need a lot of time to listen to such a lengthy saga, the storyline is for the most part enrapturing, the writing and descriptions ring beautifully, and MG's performance was wonderful. I listened to this on my way to and from work (45-90 mins commute time) over the course of the winter semester, and thoroughly enjoyed it. #Audible1
