David LeDoux narrates this offbeat audiobook with the awkward authenticity of its protagonist, Greg--a man with blurry edges. Greg climbs behind the wheel of a rented RV on a quest to find his troubled adult son, but he does so with no true momentum. LeDoux performs Greg's story with that heavy-footed walk of the ordinary person just trying--or offering a try at trying?--to make enough sense of the world to get through it with some glimmer of happiness. Despite the bleak premise, this is an effective audiobook, full of candor and realistic conversations among everyday people. LeDoux has moments in which he sounds oddly like Charles Kuralt, reporting bits from a confused life on the road. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2017]
