CONVERGENCE PROBLEMS

CONVERGENCE PROBLEMS

by Wole Talabi | Read by Ben Arogundade

Recorded Books | Unabridged
Science Fiction

Ben Arogundade does a fine job performing this collection of science-fiction short stories set in Africa. His steady voice helps listeners through the unfamiliar terrain of places and things, though there is no "coming together" of these stories as the title suggests. Each is set in its own reality.

Science Fiction

Reams of paperwork, tasteless breakfast cereals, and corporate branding--what else would you take to space?

GOLDEN SON (2 OF 2) Red Rising Saga 2

by Pierce Brown | Read by Stewart Crank, Jenna Sharpe, Jon Vertullo, Ian Russell, Richard Rohan, and a Full Cast

GraphicAudio | Audio Program
Science Fiction

Having a full cast along with sound effects and music should elevate an audiobook production. And multiple narrators are nearly a requirement for this densely populated second half of the second volume in Brown's Red Rising series. The audiobook's many characters orbit around Darrow (Stewart Crank), who rises to infiltrate the upper crust, seeking freedom for those in his lower... Read More

Listeners will find it hard to pause this sci-fi political thriller--and unlikely love story. January is a climate refugee who has relocated to a colony on Mars. In London, he was a professional ballet dancer; on Mars, because he's dangerously "Earthstrong" in the lower gravity, he must wear a metal exoskeleton that inhibits his strength. With his British accent and confiding... Read More
