Jean-Marc Berne is the perfect narrator for this punch-packing tale of how, on the death of his daughter, Mario plunges to ever more horrifying depths as he seeks to clear his debts and save his marriage. Berne's narration is spot-on, expertly using accents to differentiate the characters. Notably, his authentic narration of the Spanish sentences and paragraphs helps set the scenes. This is particularly the case with his use of a strong Spanish accent to voice Mario, reinforcing some key points in Mario's character. While some passages in Spanish may be difficult for non-Spanish speakers to follow (because the audio is not as easy to translate as print would be), this doesn't detract from the overall power of the harrowing story.
