Narrator Michael Patrick Flanagan Smith lends an athletic voice to Loriga's sci-fi novella. Listeners enter a postapocalyptic world through the perspective of a rugged countryman who, along with his wife and their kidnapped child, Julio, are rounded up by the government and shipped to the illusive Transparent City. Throughout, Smith's steady, unaffected voice evokes the unnamed protagonist's suspicions about his new home, his hazy unraveling, and, finally, his weary resignation. If you're a listener who wonders how a hot-tempered, rural man would navigate "the horrors" of a new world order in which sharing and common decision-making reign, then consider this quick-paced novella worth four hours of your time.
