Earphones Award Winner

Historical Fiction • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Gisela Chìpe's performance of this audiobook is exceptionally touching. She deftly captures the spirit of these richly defined characters and the mood of mounting dread. Set in the Yucatán peninsula during the 1800s, Moreno-Garcia's audiobook is a recasting of H.G. Wells's mysterious scientist who builds animal-human hybrids. When the truth behind this disturbing story becomes clear, it threatens to upend the lives of Dr. Moreau's family. The story's perspective alternates between Carlota, Moreau's young daughter, who loves the world of the hacienda, and Montgomery, the hacienda's overseer. Chìpe's voice effectively moves between these two points of view, embodying the theatrical, action-filled story's combination of science fiction and coming-of-age excitement. S.P.C.
