Beautiful and True

A beautiful meditation on what it's like to change identities, and to be true to yourself; about grief and forgiveness; about the funny problems of conventional life, and unconventional life too. It rings true.

Amazing narration, by an actor so skilled at making not just different accents but different people come alive in the recording.

Amazing characterization and performance to match

The narrator was great, the different voices made it easy to distinguish between characters and sections. There is one section in particular where the text flows from the son speaking as a 30 something young man to his memories as a child and the narrator's change in voice provides as seamless and smooth a transition as the text.
