Inhaltsangabe: This touching, uplifting novel spans decades of loyalty, anger, regret, and love in the lives of the Chance family. Here there is a father whose dreams of glory on a baseball field are shattered by a mill accident, a mother who clings obsessively to a religion as a ward against the darkest hour of her past, and four brothers who come of age during the seismic upheavals of the sixties and who each choose their own way to deal with what the world has become.
Vom Hörbuch: A book in need of an editor makes a special problem for a narrator. If you fall in love with a story on the page but tire of the fact that the characters' voices, written or spoken, are improbably sentimental and all share the same tics, you can skip or skim for plot. But the narrator has to read out every tedious repetition, and if you happen not to have fallen in love with the story, every unnecessary "I mean" becomes sand in the spinach. Robertson Dean performs with patience and sincerity. The real problem, for this listener anyway, is that Duncan swings hard at baseball, family love, mysticism, fly-fishing, and Vietnam as if he were rivaling Dostoyevsky but completely fails to compel belief.
