Carl Prekopp's narration takes the listener to a world in which people's memories are voluntarily removed and bound into books. The lives of Emmett Farmer, a young man who was born with the sacred skill of bookbinding, and Lucian Darnay, the only son of a wealthy family with noble ties, are intertwined in ways neither can recall. Prekopp's performance draws the listener deeply into the story. Deliberate pacing choices reflect the characters' lives at specific moments, and various accents further bring them to life. This audiobook demonstrates Prekopp's storytelling skills, though some scattered production issues can be distracting. Overall, this is a compelling listen.
