The Vow

Kim and Krickitt Carpenter with Dana Wilkerson, read by John McLain. Oasis Audio, unabridged, four CDs, 4.75 hrs., $19.99 ISBN 978-1-61375-197-8
In this memoir that inspired a feature film starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams, when Kim Carpenter places an order for a jacket with a customer service representative named Krickitt, he has no idea that he’s just met his wife-to-be. But shortly after the couple’s wedding, a car wreck robs Krickitt of her memory, including meeting and falling in love with Kim. Despite this, Kim and Krickitt stay together and manage to fall in love a second time. John McLain narrates in a rich, sonorous voice and ably captures the essence of Kim, conveying his deep religiosity and love for Krickitt. However, McLain is less successful when he performs Krickitt—a woman who is said to sound very much like her namesake insect—sounding distinctly and distractingly male and making the dynamic between the deeply religious couple at best awkward and at worst comical. A B&H paperback. (Apr.)
