THE AUDIE NOMINEES IN LITERARY FICTION 2013
The End of the Affair, by Graham Greene, Narrated by Colin Firth, Audible, Inc. This is an interesting tale of a love/hate relationship between a wife, husband, and lover, with more complexity than appears on the surface. Colin Firth did a lovely job in his narration.
Heft, by Liz Moore, Narrated by Kirby Heyborne and Keith Szarabajka, Blackstone Audio. Were it not for this audibooks’ inclusion in this list, I probably would never have chosen to listen to it, but I am really glad I did. The themes of morbid obesity and parental suicide are too close to home, and I was relieved to see that handled so well in this story. The two narrators were well suited to their parts as well. Some reviewers didn’t care for the ending, but I think it was perfect.
