Four excellent narrators bring humor, heart, and pathos to this audiobook. In a dystopian near future, a salvage crew endlessly digs through The Heap, the remains of Los Verticalés, a 500-story residential tower that collapsed into ruin. While the plot develops into a madcap conspiracy, narrators David Sadzin, Allyson Ryan, Sarah Naughton, and Todd Haberkorn rotate between the characters and effectively capture their unique personalities and perspectives. Among the salvage crew is Orville Anders, who's looking for his brother, a radio host who survived the collapse and is broadcasting from inside The Heap. Joining Orville are Hans, a photographer documenting the massive project, and Lydia, who has political aspirations within the local community. The narrators also add texture with their nuanced readings of "The Later Years," excerpts from former residents that chronicle the tower's rise and fall.
