Narrator Feodor Chin embraces the satirical world of this debut novel with a whimsical tone, an engaged style, and a quick cadence that suits the nineteenth-century fable. He does a fine performance of the sounds in this audiobook--from the thwack of an axe to the sharp sound of gunshots and the splashes of swimming in Lake Erie. Befitting this satire of the tall tale, everything in this audiobook is outsized. The plot rotates around the brothers Son--Big Son, the author of fabulous feats, and Medium (called "Meed"), the narrator, who tells of his mythic sibling's exploits and records them in an almanac. The listener is treated to all the hijinks--from a boat race to a bridge burning and a prodigious brawl. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2020]
