A talented narrator can make listeners think they're listening to multiple people. Vikas Adam's crackling narration of this thrilling audiobook accomplishes exactly that difficult feat. During a rise of the machines, Pounce, a tiger-shaped nannybot, must keep alive his young charge, Ezra, while seeking a haven that may not even exist anymore. Adam brings Pounce's angst to life as he debates whether he is protecting Ezra through freewill or programming. But Adam is equally believable as hesitant 8-year-old Ezra and a multitude of other characters--robots and humans--who traverse an apocalyptic wasteland. The result of Adam's vocal dexterity is a memorable cautionary tale. D.E.M. 2022 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
