LEMON is a somewhat elliptical, somewhat brilliant audiobook held together by the strong performances of three narrators. Without Greta Jung, Jaine Ye, and Greg Chun providing very different voices, it would be easy for listeners to get lost in this short listen. A print version, with its visual clues, still might be a useful companion to the audiobook. All three narrator performances are excellent, though Ye's is perhaps the most memorable; her character radiates anxiety. The plot involves the 2002 murder of a beautiful South Korean girl, Kim Hae-on, and its lasting impacts on those around her, especially Da-on, her younger sister, and a few former classmates. It is as much a character study as a mystery. A compelling listen. G.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2022]
