This audiobook highlights why, in certain circumstances, nothing can replace the power of the spoken word. Aoife McMahon's narration is extraordinary, as are the first-person accounts she presents of the lives of refugees in Libyan detention camps and their efforts to escape seemingly unfathomable conditions. McMahon's delivery is precise and in many ways as haunting as the stories that author Sally Hayden recounts. The prologue prepares listeners for the material to come by using actual recordings of migrants imploring the world for help. But at the core, McMahon voices the fears and desires of the detainees in ways that make audio the ideal format, allowing the book to inhabit listeners' psyches in ways they will remember for a long time.
