Robert Petkoff's narration keeps listeners engaged with Snowden Wright's nonlinear story. The novel covers three generations of the Forster family, beginning in the early twentieth century when Houghton Forster founds the incredibly successful PanCola Company. Petkoff channels the many characters in this convoluted, difficult-to-follow saga of yet another dysfunctional family. Most poignantly, Petkoff's Montgomery sounds successful and handsome, yet he makes listeners feel the pain of the character's heartbreak. His voice is appropriately snarky or cruel for twins Lance and Ramsey, and he never descends to stereotype for the voice of mentally challenged Harold. In a style blending fact and fiction, the audiobook spans a century of American social and cultural history while the thin plot circles around locating the secret recipe for PanCola.
