Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

A full cast narrates this controversial story of 12 strangers who embark upon on a cross-country road trip, brought together by their mutual desire to commit suicide. Disillusioned writer Mark Antonelli leads the group; he outfits an old tour bus and picks up companions along the way. With its engaging mix of emails, recordings, and sound effects, this book is perfectly realized in audio. Listeners will be captivated by the text conversations, impromptu recordings, and heartbreaking journal entries that are revealed throughout the trip. The narrators capture the depth of the passengers' personalities and circumstances, skillfully conveying their pain, shame, and exhaustion, while also highlighting their enduring tenderness. Discretion is strongly advised, but for those seeking a unique window onto a difficult topic, this is an unforgettable journey. S.A.H.
