Jonathan's life has changed in ways that are inconceivable to him, so he takes off, not sure where he's going. At each stop in his journey he discovers something about himself that moves him along to further self-discovery. Dan John Miller presents Jonathan as a calm, somewhat detached, self-absorbed young man. Miller speaks with a conviction that makes listeners believe in the significance of Jonathan's discoveries and in the wisdom of the characters he encounters on his journey. Miller uses varying accents and vocal tones to distinguish these characters and the regions Jonathan is passing through when he meets them. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
