At more than 40 hours, this ambitious apocalyptic novel makes full use of its 14 talented narrators. As Los Angeles burns, a large cast of politicians, scientists, activists, and everyday people grapple with the challenges of climate disaster. This dour cautionary tale, heavily burdened by exposition and future history, sets a standard for effective ensemble casting and coordination of voices. Each narrator is distinctive and unique, and their styles are sometimes very different. But over so many hours those differences balance out and lend credence to a narrative that spans the globe, and years into the future. Together, these fine performers bring substance to the novel's human drama and its urgent environmental message. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2023]
