Narrator Aoife McMahon's voice makes the conflicts of Millennials beautiful in today's messy world. Author Sally Rooney presents a tableau of Irish friends--Eileen, Alice, Felix, and Simon--who wrestle with relationships, mental health, politics, and the purpose of life. McMahon's acting dexterity shows in seamless shifts between points of view, characters, and emotions. Male to female, white-collar to blue-collar, anger to passion--her crisp Irish accent makes these transitions with the lightness of a lark. Likewise, via McMahon, Rooney's peerless descriptions imprint upon the mind's eye. The listener won't soon forget a silk blouse caressed like a pet, freckled arms made pink by the sun, the coast of Ireland at nightfall, or the forgiveness of a best friend. A hopeful Millennial journey shines through McMahon's performance. E.S.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2021]
