Arthur C. Clarke's final book, cowritten with Frederick Pohl, takes place in the nation of Sri Lanka, where the respected science fiction author spent the final years of his life. The love Clarke had for this tiny nation and its people comes through in his work. Mark Bramhall’s outstanding performance is the perfect complement for the novel. Bramhall pronounces the tongue-twisting Sri Lankan and Indian names and places with facility, making them sound lyrical and wonderful. Gentle accents here and there bring the characters to life, especially the hero, Ranjit Subranian, a young man who discovers the mathematical proof of Fermat’s legendary theorem. Sadly, he does it just as space aliens are about to destroy Earth. C'mon. It's Clarke! You knew aliens were in there somewhere. M.S.
