    It says a lot about the ability of actors to use their voices to tell a story. I was able to imagine what must be happening on stage but virtue of the power of the words (script) and the actors' voices. The only place that I had to go to the internet to look up the plot was at the very end - I thought I knew what had happened, but I just couldn't be sure. This definitely kept my interest. John Lithgow and BD Wong were great.

    I listened to this on a trip from my hometown to Austin, TX. I was completely lost in it. It made the trip so much more enjoyable. Mr. Lithgow and Mr. Wong are wonderully convincing in their roles. Mr. Hwang makes you stop and think about love, lust and the trouble with boundaries.

    An excellent recording. John Lithgow does a superb job in bringing the drama to life.

    I really enjoyed the voices of John Lithgow and B.D. Wong- which made the audiobook. It was 2 discs which was just the right length. The end was a bit blah but overall entertaining enough to rent!

    Good audio production values. Boring, predictable story
