Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Robert Sean Leonard

Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2002

Michael Crichton can combine science and suspense in riveting stories. He introduces nanotechnology--the developing field of building electronic circuits from single molecules--with a terrifying story of technology run amok. Integrating the scientific details and propelling the action is not an easy task, but Robert Sean Leonard handles the story with skilled understanding. The author leads off with a foreword that puts the reality of nanotechnology in context, but it then becomes Leonard’s task to keep the listener engaged. He succeeds beautifully. Portraying the scientists with cool normalcy, Leonard allows the developing crisis to terrify and enthrall without resorting to overdramatization. The abridgment is excellent, and though listeners will certainly be aware of consolidation of the timeline, the pace of this version suffers no detractions. Riveting. R.F.W.
