Narrator Jacques Roy's performance of this novel, which takes place in a restaurant in Oslo, captures the unnamed waiter's transition from impeccable to flustered when his daily routine is pushed off course by the arrival of a new customer. From the moment the beautiful young woman enters The Hills restaurant, the natural order of things begins to fall apart: Regular diners who have never talked to each other meet and make plans, the wall between customers and staff appears to be crumbling, and our middle-aged career waiter makes amateur mistakes. This quiet story is told solely from the waiter's perspective, and Roy's delivery highlights the deeper feelings and quirky humor behind the protagonist's observations. THE WAITER is perfect for listeners who enjoy character-driven audiobooks. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2019]
