Rosa Salazar provides a dead-on, almost eerie, performance of an AI in this short science fiction story. Part of the Amazon Original "Forward Collection," this is a tale of pushing boundaries and taking risks. Virtual game developer Riley pours her life into creating a character so advanced that it starts to exhibit its own free will: Meet Maxine. Salazar brings Maxine to life, altering her performance as the AI refines and reinvents itself throughout the story. It's a startling evolution of character, driven home by Salazar's transition from passive dialogue to gut-punching directness. The story challenges what it means to be human and gives sci-fi listeners some poignant moments to ponder long after the credits end. N.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2019]
