Korean-American narrator Greta Jung vividly brings to life the rich dystopian Thai setting of this fantasy twist on LES MISERABLES. At age 9, orphaned Pong escapes from Namwon Prison, where he was born. But his life as a fugitive is complicated when the prison warden’s privileged daughter, Nok, makes it her mission to recapture him to win favor with the autocratic governor. As Pong struggles to survive in the revolutionary underbelly of a city oppressed by inequality, Nok faces her own questions of fairness, loyalty, and morality. Jung pays close attention to the intonation of long and difficult-to-pronounce names in the tonal Thai language. Distinct voices for each character give even more resonance to the emotional pull of their relationships. S.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
