In an engaging journalistic style, Peter Ganim narrates this epic tale of Egypt, set in the time leading up to the Egyptian revolution of 1952. Although the novel is heavily populated with characters, Ganim's steady storytelling and clear pronunciation of characters' names make it simple to keep track of the various plotlines. The action revolves around the fortunes of the six members of the Gaarar family and their roles in the titular automobile club. While Ganim voices each member in a distinct voice, the combination of voices suggests a dying colonial world. The audiobook educates listeners about this tumultuous period of Middle Eastern history. Ganim's excellent rendering ensures that this audiobook instructs and entertains. D.G.P. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
