Marcelo in the Real World

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Francisco Stork

Narrated By: Lincoln Hoppe

Publisher: Listening Library (Audio)

Date: March 2009

Duration: 10 hours 8 minutes

Summary:

Marcelo Sandoval hears music that nobody else can hear–part of an autism-like condition that no doctor has been able to identify. But his father has never fully believed in the music or Marcelo’s differences, and he challenges Marcelo to work in the mailroom of his law firm for the summer. . . to join “the real world.”

There Marcelo meets Jasmine, his beautiful and surprising coworker, and Wendell, the son of another partner in the firm. He learns about competition and jealousy, anger and desire. But it’s a picture he finds in a file–a picture of a girl with half a face–that truly connects him with the real world: its suffering, its injustice, and what he can do to fight.

Reminiscent of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in the intensity and purity of its voice, this extraordinary audiobook is a love story, a legal drama, and a celebration of the music each of us hears inside.

    I love this book! The narrator has a great inflection that allows you to really get affect of the main character. My mom read the book and didn't like it as much as the narrated version. This book is full of insights that reverberate way after I finished reading. I bought the book so I could re-read some of Marcelo's brilliant observations about life. Great read!
