Publisher's Summary

Man Booker Prize, Fiction, 2000
"Ten days after the war ended, my sister Laura drove a car off a bridge." Thus begins this novel.
Laura Chase's older sister Iris, married at 18 to a politically prominent industrialist but now poor and 82, is living in Port Ticonderoga, a town dominated by their once prosperous family. While coping with her unreliable body, Iris reflects on her far-from-exemplary life, in particular the events surrounding her sister's tragic death.

Excellent book and mostly excellent narration

Margaret Atwood is a stellar writer and storyteller, and Lorelei King does a great job of the voice characterisations with very believable Ontario accents--except that she mispronounces two words that made me (and would make anyone else from that province) howl in momentary dirision. The correct pronunciations of two of Toronto's major downtown thoroughfares are Yonge (as in "young") St and Spadina ("spad-EYE-na") Ave. I can understand that as an American working in England Ms King herself might not know how to say these names, but surely Audible has producers that would check such things as a matter of course.
Still a great listen.

The good audio version of this book

I use it to put me to sleep at night. A good narration but the story is not interesting for me.
