You Deserve Nothing Review

Just got a great review in for You Deserve Nothing, a wonderful fiction title I narrated a while back for Tantor audio, the narration team included the spectacularly talented Cassandra Campbell and Dan John Miller.

REVIEW. First published June 15, 2012 (Booklist Online).

Will Silver is a popular teacher at an international school in France, but when he begins an affair with student Marie, it’s only a matter of time before he falls from grace. The story is read by three actors. Campbell portrays insecure Marie in tones that show the teen’s alternating feelings of desperation and happiness. Adam Verner reads the part of shy Gilad, shifting his tones to show the lonely and socially unaware lad gaining confidence and friends and eventually losing respect for his teacher. When Gilad confronts his abusive father, Verner’s intense reading makes us want to stand up and cheer. Dan John Miller reveals Silver as a conflicted, depressed, and directionless man. He captures Silver’s pleasure in his students’ admiration as well as his lack of emotion during his affair with Marie. All three narrators do exceptional jobs with a variety of accents (French, Irish, Middle Eastern, and more) and some French text. A thoughtful debut novel.
