Filled with mysterious symmetries and rendered in heart-stopping prose, Fugitive Pieces is a triumphant work, an audiobook that should not so much be listened to as it should be surrendered to.

Beautiful Pieces That Never Worked as a Whole
Would you try another book from Anne Michaels and/or Peter Marinker?
I don't know that I'd try another book by Anne Michaels since I found this one hard to get through. Structurally, I was really thrown by the 2nd part of the book and almost completely lost interest.
How could the performance have been better?
The narrator had some odd pronunciation quirks that may be due to American/Canadian/British English differences but some of them I thought "I think he's just wrong!" Most such changed pronunciations roll over me but not in this book.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The story itself is tragic and interesting and there are very lyrical passages in the novel that I enjoyed. But at the end of the day, getting through it was a bit of a chore for me.
