Narrator Brian Nishii brings the wide-eyed antagonist of this enchanting audiobook to life with subtle humor and warmth. Yuki is an 18-year-old Japanese urbanite who finds himself unwittingly agreeing to spend a year in deep nature learning the art and skill of forestry. One of Yuki's new colleagues throws his phone battery away, essentially cutting Yuki off from his old life of convenience. As he builds relationships and picks up the local dialect, Yuki discovers his new environs hold mysterious secrets, as well as a deep connection to Japanese culture. Nishii's performance captures Yuki's earnestness and frustrations as he learns how people survive off the land. S.P.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2021]
