Steven Jay Cohen brings a note of eeriness and elegy to his narration of Price's Edgar Award-winning novel. This story traces the fall of the Sikorskys, Jewish-Polish immigrants who achieved the American dream with their purchase and renovation of the Hotel Neversink. Cohen channels the novel's melancholy tone, describing the family's damaged reputation when a young boy disappears from the hotel, and its steady decline once his bones are discovered. Cohen's voice is perfectly weary as he recounts the experiences of the family as Alice survives a brutal attack and Len desperately schemes to save the hotel. Cohen narrates each character's story in a similar tone, somewhat diminishing the nuances of this otherwise compelling listen. S.A.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
