Mozhan Marno narrates a story about training for an expedition to Mars with expert voicing of the many characters. Prime Space, a private company, has selected three astronauts to send to Mars. Before they can go, they must withstand a seventeen-month long simulation of the trip to test their psychological and physical well-being--all, paradoxically, in intense isolation but under constant observation. Marno transitions smoothly between the accents and distinct personalities of astronauts Helen, Sergei, and Yoshi, as well as their families and observers, who are going about their everyday lives on Earth. This moving audiobook is less about traveling in space than it is about the extremes to which humans can push themselves, the masks they use to obscure themselves from others, and the challenges of being the one left behind.
