Moments before the cafe he is sitting in blows up, Nat Idle is told to get out by someone who resembles his dead ex-girlfriend, Annie. With his life intact, the journalist in him yearns to put the pieces together. In his pursuit, his answers only yield more questions; further, he discovers that his body and mind are quickly deteriorating. As comprehension dawns, he may be out of time. Jason Singer's soft, determined voice works well for this first-person narration. Though his voices for female and secondary characters aren't noteworthy, he captures Idle's character well. The abridgment, however, seems to have hollowed out the story, especially as its reaches its climax and denouement. L.E. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
