Narrator Nigel Patterson faced a few challenges when taking on Anna Kavan's novel. First, the story is hard to classify. Is it science fiction? Maybe. Dystopian avant-garde? Yup. Sometimes difficult to follow? Indeed. Patterson does a great job keeping listeners engaged as the story shifts from a looming ice apocalypse to dream sequences and a bizarre love story. It's a difficult listen to, but Patterson keeps it interesting. After hearing Jonathan Lethem's foreword, listeners will want to stick with the book and get to the afterword, where Patterson continues his solid narration in sharing scholar Kate Sambreno's insights into Kavan and her work. Patterson's passion and ability keep listeners shivering as the temperatures in the novel plummet. J.P.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
