From AudioFile:

Alice Hoffman's newest novel once again demonstrates her magic as a storyteller. In this story about relationships, loneliness and being misunderstood, Hoffman's simple, yet powerful, style artfully weaves together past and present, one life to another, allowing us inside the hearts and minds of her unique characters. Kate Nelligan's moderate pace makes for clarity and fine vocal differentiation--from the eerie misfit, Matthew, to gravelly, irritated "Old Dick." The abridgment flows smoothly, free of sound effects and music. Like the storyteller's intricate tale, Second Nature is best when heard. J.A.H. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
