This is a great Audio Drama!
This full cast audiobook is amazing! It is one of those rare novels that you will find impossible to stop listening. The plot is intriguing from the beginning baked up with science and history: it brings the listener to some interesting philosophical questions. A smart mystery with many surprising and unexpected turns along the way that has me eagerly awaiting for the second installment. I listened at this in nearly two evenings. I loved the narrator as well as the all-stars cast and the sound effects. It has been like watching a movie without the visual. You are totally submerged into the experience. Fascinating. I highly recommend listening!
