There’s something familiar and comfortable about Zach Appelman’s performance in this beautifully crafted audiobook. His clear, confident tone also features subtle warmth. His voice animates the story of Marie-Laure, a French girl, and Werner, a German boy, and their experiences during the period of WWII. The novel itself keeps to a brisk pace as it shifts back and forth between the main characters. Surprisingly, the pace makes for a story that is easily followed and immediately engaging. Details and images are elegant in their simplicity, and the dramatic history is tempered by humanity—thanks to both a skilled author and a masterful narrator. L.B.F.
