The recent movie sparked new interest in David Brin's futurist saga. And listeners who try this audiobook will find an impressive story of survival and hope that seems to have been lost to Hollywood, but not to Brin's many devoted fans. Dick Hill masterfully crafts characters with vocal color. He gives smaller players just the right personality for their temporary focus and passes on to the next scene. Action and drama are projected with finesse without overshadowing Brin's writing. The program holds up well to abridgment, and the story is carefully adapted. The full text is an adventure appealing to a wide range of ages and interests. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 98]
