Narrator Angus King captures tattooed, bearded party guy Dean Nicholson, who loses his heart to an abandoned kitten he names Nala at the start of an around-the-world journey. Listeners will join the duo as they bike around mostly remote parts of Europe and Asia. King nails Nicholson's strong Scottish brogue, along with the diverse accents of the people man and feline encounter. Expressing Nicholson's keen sense of humor, King describes food poisoning woes and narrow escapes; he also realistically communicates Nicholson's homesickness and heartbreaking observations of poverty. The kind assistance of Instagram devotees and warmhearted presence of Nala are constants throughout the production. King enhances Nicholson's natural storytelling ability, making listeners feel part of his adventure. S.G.B.
