Narrators Kim Mai Guest and Joel Froomkin outshine the material in this audiobook, set 1,200 years in the future on a distant planet. Guest narrates the first-person perspective of an Earthling whose time in suspended animation shot a thousand years past her wake-up date. English has evolved. New words have formed. Old words have been eradicated. The accent of native speakers is unlike anything we have ever heard. Guest manages to move between the angsty teenager and world-weary natives with ease. Froomkin narrates almost exclusively in the evolved language. His deftness as a narrator gives listeners an opportunity to actually learn the language, making the audiobook experience fully immersive.
