Narrator Mara Wilson reprises her role as the titular faceless old woman from the popular "Welcome to Night Vale" podcast. This audiobook examines the character's origins and delves into her motivations. The story alternates between short sections in present-day Night Vale and long historical sections recounting how she came to be said faceless old woman. Wilson deals effortlessly with the long monologues, and since there is minimal dialogue, it's not difficult to keep track of the characters. With a less experienced performer, this audiobook could easily become a tiresome slog. While Wilson is deft in her performance, the novel may prove to be too opaque for those not already invested in the world of Night Vale.
