With its mix of science, philosophy and memoir, Natalie Hodges's audiobook debut is difficult to characterize. But whatever the genre, narrator Cindy Kay embraces this "Journey Through Music, Performance, and the Science of Time" in all its quirkiness. Hodges dreamed of being a solo violinist but struggled with performance anxiety. Here she explores her experiences from several perspectives, touching on neuroscience and physics. But the most engaging sections are those in which she shares the stories of her abusive father and her mother--who emigrated from Korea, put herself through Harvard, and imparted her love of music. In these reflections Kay's voice feels the warmest--the most in tune with the author's personal struggles and the insights that helped her overcome them.
