Young Adult Young Adult • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

David Linski narrates as Simon, a teenager from Australia who loves music but, because of a stroke, has lost all hearing. Narrating in first person as a character who cannot hear is no easy feat, and Linski is up to the task. He makes the smart decision to speak slowly and clearly because Simon, who can talk but can't hear himself, would do exactly that. Additionally, Linski makes the choice to only do distinct voices for characters whom Simon would have heard before losing his hearing, such as his family and friends. The rest of the cast sound almost indistinct from each other--other than there being a slight variation for gender. Linski brings the listener on a painful but beautiful ride.
