Hearing Huw Parmenter narrate this unique and engrossing novel is like viewing a vivid, intricate modern painting. It's a challenge at first to see the pattern but infinitely satisfying when you grasp the artist's intent. Jasper is a 13-year-old boy with autism and synesthesia, which means he sees colors when he hears sounds. Using a crisp, flat, anxious voice, Parmenter shows us a young protagonist who fixates on parakeets, routines, and his dead mother. How this young man becomes involved with the murder of a music teacher is a gripping story once the listener sorts out the rainbow of colors that govern Jasper's perceptions. This audiobook requires one's full attention--but is worth the effort. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2018]
