SHADOW PUPPETS

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Stefan Rudnicki

Science Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

SHADOW PUPPETS tracks the fortunes of a handful of Card’s characters as they navigate the sociopolitical landscape after the Formic Wars. David Birney’s voice sounds purposely fatigued, beautifully conveying world leader Peter Wiggin’s frustrated resignation, and Stefan Rudnicki’s clipped, low baritone is perfect for the cloak-and-dagger email correspondence that bookends the chapters. Gabrielle de Cuir expertly handles both accents and emotion, although her voice is wistful to the point of melancholy and occasionally seems inappropriate to Petra’s fiery character. Of the four narrators, Scott Brick soars above the rest. He tackles the Bean chapters with the youthful cynicism and passion that Bean embodies in this book, capturing the character’s voice with wonderful precision. These four narrators come together to create a wholly satisfying and engrossing listening experience. A.H.A.
