Cassandra Campbell delivers an elegant narration of this audiobook, a character-driven story sprinkled with elements of science fiction. A mysterious disease strikes a college town in Southern California. The infected fall asleep and remain in a deep, dreamy state of unconsciousness. While some die, most remain alive but unable to return to consciousness. As the disease continues to spread, the ensuing events unfold through a kaleidoscope of shifting perspectives. One moment, Campbell sounds detached but not unkind as she reads passages from an omniscient point of view. The next, she's inhabiting the mind of any of a number of well-drawn characters and realizing their most private inner world. Her impressive balancing act renders a complicated story structure into a smooth and satisfying listening experience. A.T.N. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2019]
