WILDHOOD The Epic Journey from Adolescence to Adulthood in Humans and Other Animals

by | Read by Robin Miles

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Robin Miles adds a continuous tone of excitement to this scientific exploration of life as a teenage mammal. The authors cleverly examine what they label "wildhood"--those curious and naïve years after childhood and before adulthood. Much like the audiobook's young subjects, Miles's voice pops with energy. She picks up the pace and adds tension when drama is called for, such as the stalking of penguins by a leopard seal, and other such scenes that show animal behavior. Whether detailing the complex hierarchy of a hyena den or comparing social media "likes" to primate grooming habits, her narration carries each scene to its dramatic conclusion. Miles's performance makes expanding one's understanding of adolescent mammals great fun. J.T. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
