This allegorical novel gives Nicole Lewis the opportunity to shine in her portrayal of Nalini, a sociologist who finds herself transported to New Roanoke, a community living in a terrarium on one of Jupiter's moons. There, she decides to forgo writing the academic treatise she had planned and instead produce a pop science manifesto. When the officers on a newly arriving ship announce the possibility of rescuing those on New Roanoke, they are surprisingly resistant--and so is the entity that watches over them. Lewis's warm voice and dexterity with accents allow her to make the politicians and members of the community at all levels realistic and unique, whether they're determined to maintain the status quo or wanting to escape it. Listeners will be caught up in this mesmerizing story. E.J.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
