Publisher's Summary

Unsaid is told from the perspective of Helena Colden, a veterinarian who has just died of breast cancer. Helena is forced to witness the rapid emotional deterioration of her husband, David. With Helena's passing, David, a successful Manhattan attorney, loses the only connection that made his life full. He tries to carry on the life that Helena had created for them, but he is too grief-stricken, too angry, and too quickly reabsorbed into the demands of his career. Helena's animals likewise struggle with the loss of their understanding and compassionate human companion.
Because of Helena, David becomes involved in a court case to save the life of a chimpanzee that may hold the key to unlocking the mysteries of animals consciousness. Through this case all the threads of Helena's life entwine and explode - unexpectedly, painfully, beautifully.

Great book but...

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the story but this narrator is horrible. She is just reading words on a page without giving any life or individuality to any of the characters. I will be sure to avoid any more books narrated by her.

Remarkable book not easy to explain

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes if you liked The Art of Racing In the Rain this book is somewhat on the same level. I passed it up because of reviews but finally listened and was glad I did.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Unsaid?

When the husband goes to Paris and finds something very unusual and his point of view begins to change. Cindy was a turning point.


Which character – as performed by Angela Brazil – was your favorite?

Probably as the "wife" narrating the story and of course Cindy and can't forget Arthur.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

How Cindy finally ended and when Skippy let everyone know it was time for him to leave.


Any additional comments?

This author has a unique understanding of nonhuman life.
