Graphic novelist Kristen Radtke narrates her study and considerations of the differences between aloneness, loneliness, and social deprivation at a pace that allows listeners to follow her combination of research and reflection. In spite of this, and in spite of the compelling content, the production suffers from the mistake of ignoring the content that her masterful sequential art provided in the original, flattening the affect of her presentation. This reviewer wonders if this production can be termed "unabridged," given the loss of vital information and mood setting the original text acquires from its format. Because Radtke, an excellent cartoonist, researcher, and thinker, is not a professional narrator, there seems to be little gained by this audiobook edition of her work.
