My original Tears of Glass audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.
Tears of Glass by David Lake is an unusual listen with its unique production of the written word and weaving it successfully with a sound track of music representing the late 60’s-80’s time period. The music connects with the listener reminding them of a time long gone and yet hooks the listener with its beat and lyrics.
Morgan is a man who finds himself a failure at everything he has done from his jobs to his career in songwriting to relationships. Now he finds that his friendship circle is growing increasingly smaller due to weird accidents. Accidentally, he becomes involved with government secrets, nuclear war, international espionage and more all because of his passion for 60’s-80’s blues music and a rejected demo tape from a blues artist. Not overly aware at first, he finds himself on the run – confused and having to deal with things larger than ever. Given his penchant for failure, will this be yet one more or will he manage to live a long life?
It is sometimes hard to keep up with all the conspiracies and characters. Lake is a masterful wordsmith describing vividly his characters and the plight they find themselves. The plot and music are cohesive and enhance one another brilliantly. The characters are well-developed and are clearly flawed but real. Lake’s skillful writing and the music choice takes the listener and dumps them smack in the middle of the action. Mixed with dark humor and action, one cannot help but become part of the story.
The audiobook was very well written and performed by Fred Filbrich. Filbrich is a talented narrator who spoke clearly and concisely but also became the characters. I thought he kept a steady pace with his reading. His voice was steady and calming, delivering the dark humored responses appropriately and well.
The book, in my opinion was unique and well done. With that being said and my passion for classic rock, I found the music distracting at first. But after listening carefully to the words and recognizing how they interconnected with the story, I was fine with it. Could it have been done without the music? Yes, but it might not have been as powerful.
The audio production of this book was good except for hearing Fred Filbrich swallow all too often. I suspect the mike was too close. Other than this, the production was high quality.
