Tevis offers a new twist on the postapocalyptic theme. Narrators Robert Fass and Nicole Poole portray the last viable humans on an Earth overcome by well-meaning robots. As narrators, they keep the listener guessing throughout. Fass embodies his character with a will to survive that far surpasses that of the rest of the drug-addled humans, yet he speaks with a kindness and dignity none of the others share. When he speaks as Spofforth, the robot overlord, his voice has a slight mechanical sound that gives additional credibility to the story. Poole beautifully portrays Mary Lou, the last mother on a dying Earth. This audiobook, a stunning example of science fiction, is perfectly performed. M.S.
