Turning Orson Scott Card’s THE CALL OF EARTH into an audiobook presents a challenge to the director and the reader since Card saddled his main characters with names like General Vozmuzhalnoy Vozmozhno, Rashgallivak, and Gaballufix. But narrator Stefan Rudnicki makes it sound easy. These names just roll off his tongue. He has similar success with all the tongue-twisting names of people in this faraway world of Harmony. Rudnicki is a master of scene setting, his calm, paternal voice laying the groundwork for a story of intense passion and intrigue. This is the second book in a series. Harmony is populated by descendants of Earth and has long been protected by a god-like computer called the Oversoul. Things are fine until Vozmozhno defies “god” and conquers the female-dominated city of Basilica. M.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2010]
