Here's an audio handbook on running a revolution. The year is 2075. The moon has long been Earth's penal colony, but now her inhabitants throw off the chains of oppression and struggle to establish the Free Lunar State. George Wilson's low-key narration rarely falters, even when dealing with the polyglot "loonie" speech, which is liberally sprinkled with Russian words. There are several main characters, including Mike, the super-computer, and scores of minor roles. Wilson gives each a distinct and recognizable voice. Manuel, the novel's narrator, is a cool character; Wilson carefully maintains Manuel's detachment in the reading. Even the love scene is understated and, as a result of the disciplined presentation, the listener becomes increasingly engaged in this unique book.
