Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Joe Clifford gives the listener not only an evocative setting and a taught, brilliantly structured plot, he actually makes us care deeply for the characters in a very real, uncontrived and uncompromising way. This is a rare quality in the genre. Timothy Mckean meets the standards set for the story by Clifford with a studied and gripping style that feels unencumbered by pretense.
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favorite character is Chris because, in all of his human error, he still holds onto a strong sense of honor that is rare in the society that he seems perpetually outside of. I also enjoyed Timothy McKean's voice for Chris the most.
What about Timothy McKean’s performance did you like?
It seemed that Timothy McKean held the weight and urgency of the plot perfectly while giving added voice to each character's tremendous emotional dimension.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, I listened to it almost straight through with only one 10 minute interruption.

I was a bit skeptical of audiobooks, but thought I'd give it a try after hearing a raving review of Timothy McKean's delivery of Joe Clifford's novel LAMENTATION. It took me awhile to embrace this method of "reading," but in the end I was not disappointed. McKean truly brought Clifford's characters to life for me, and the story line fully engulfed me.
Clifford skillfully wove a tale of believable characters and plot twists that kept me interested. I would highly recommend this book and look forward to more of Joe Clifford's books. I also enjoyed the freedom of enjoying a great book via Audible while I drove, folded laundry, and weeded the garden. I will definitely search out audiobooks read by Timothy McKean.
