When an author chooses to narrate her own work, as Nancy Pearl does, the listener benefits from a depth of understanding of the characters. But listeners need to be prepared that this narration is a reading, rather than a performance. The poignant and sometimes painful story is delivered with emotion in a clear voice at a decent pace. However, there is no differentiation of characters, and the story shifts in time, place, and point of view from chapter to chapter. As a result, the listener has to be totally tuned in to follow the journey of Lizzie and George as it brings them to their current state. Nonetheless, Nancy Pearl's love of literature and poetry comes through in her debut novel. E.Q. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2017]
