Narrator Suzie Althens's bright tone and pacing prove to be a buoyant guide through this fascinating examination of the spaces in which we live and work. The audiobook covers the spectrum of the "built environment," the constructed world that impacts our lives. Listeners are given details that range from the microorganisms living among us in our homes to the social impact of hospital and prison architecture. Each chapter focuses on individuals and how their lives are impacted by their environments; in one passage, a prisoner recounts his experience of solitary confinement: "They keep you alive while killing you." Althens smoothly delivers the various perspectives, capturing both the emotional and scientific frameworks of the topic. This is the perfect audiobook for our days of eternal lockdown.
