Narrator Jennifer Lim brings Angie Kim's debut novel to life. In rural Virginia, an experimental treatment facility offers cures for conditions like autism using a device call the Miracle Submarine. Then the device blows up, killing two people, and a murder trial follows. The story is full of unreliable narrators who are given unique voices by Lim. Protagonists Young and Pak's Korean accents are believable as they struggle to protect their pursuit of the American Dream. Their teenage daughter Mary's American voice is angry and resentful of her outsider status. In the courtroom scenes, prosecutor Abe's friendly Southern drawl masks his focused questioning, and defense lawyer Shannon's confident, relentless voice slowly exposes the lies and secrets that led to the tragedy. This impressive debut is enhanced by the talented Lim. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2019]
