Hurley, a two-time Hugo winner and deeply thoughtful social and media critic, has published a collection of essays on topics ranging from her personal realizations of white privilege to the rage she and other women (and some men) share at online misogynists from the gaming world. C.S.E. Cooney's narration, sadly, inspires even the most sympathetic listener to pack up the audio and go find the print work: She over-enunciates, frequently injects a whine into her tone that doesn't reflect Hurley's attitude, and exhibits a stiffness that suggests discomfort with performing. An author herself, we can hope that Cooney trains and practices for subsequent narration efforts. F.M.R.G. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2016]
