An ensemble of narrators works together to memorably portray life at a failing antiques mall in Wichita, Kansas. Each chapter is told from the point of view of one of seven characters. Particularly impressive is the consistent presentation of these characters, who interact with each other in every chapter, by all the narrators. While each narrator is excellent, standout performances come from Arthur Morey's rendering of the befuddled widower, Ronald, along with Samantha Desz's evocation of the judgmental Margaret and conveyance of Delores, who has a unique relationship with her Barbie doll collection. The anticipated arrival of two "Antique Roadshow" style television hosts, as well as the disappearance of a child pageant princess, keeps this darkly comedic audiobook moving at an engaging pace.
