Publisher's Summary

Coming back to his childhood home after years of absence, Ben is unprepared for the secret which is now revealed to him: His mother, Natasha, who used to be a brilliant pianist, is losing herself to early-onset Alzheimer's, which turns the way her mind works into a riddle. His father has remarried, and his new wife, Anita, looks remarkably similar to Natasha - only much younger. In this state of being isolated, being apart from love, how will Ben react when it is so tempting to resort to blame and guilt? "In our family, forgiveness is something you pray for, something you yearn to receive - but so seldom do you give it to others."
Behind his father's back, Ben and Anita find themselves increasingly drawn to each other. They take turns using an old tape recorder to express their most intimate thoughts, not realizing at first that their voices are being captured by him. These tapes, with his eloquent speech and her slang, reveal the story from two opposite viewpoints.
What emerges in this family is a struggle, a desperate, daring struggle to find a path out of conflicts, out of isolation, from guilt to forgiveness.

Strong Second Volume in this Amazing Series!

Story/Attention Holding

Still Life with Memories, Book 2 by Uvi Poznansky narrated by David Kudler this is an amazing second edition into the author’s series. I was just amazed by the change in perspective the author used when writing the story from Ben’s point of view. The way 2 people see the event differently is so startling.

The background on the life of the family as well filled in so many wholes I did not realize had existed. The lies Lenny tells Ben about his mother and his reasoning for them. Anita and Lenny’s relationship, the deeper meaning of it, and the symbolism throughout the story all make this such a great story. This holds the listener's attention. The story may not be for everyone this is definitely a genre story for fans for women’s fiction and literary fiction. If you have an open mind and are willing to expand your listening palate try Ms. Pozansky’s series. It is a deep and compelling literary treat. And this is coming from a guy whose normal listening fare is post-apocalyptic fiction, horror, and mystery.

Narration/ProductionValue

The narration for the audiobook was provided by David Kudler. This is the first time that I have heard an audio performance by Mr. Kudler. He did an excellent job with this varied cast of established characters. He does an excellent job of matching voices to the characters and making them his own. The production value of this audiobook is excellent it has wonderful crispness and clarity through the entire production. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

It wasn't for me...

I haven't read book one in this series and I'm not sure how much impact that had on my experience with this book. By the time I reached half way I was desperate for it to end. I didn't connect with the characters and overall I found it boring.

There was nothing wrong with it, the book is well written, I just didn't like it.

The narration is well done, the character voices are distinct and recognizable and the delivery was good.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
