Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Marin Ireland

Fantasy • 14.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Marin Ireland navigates an ever-expanding world of characters and details. In a mysterious city recently devastated by conflict, museums and universities have been turned to rubble. Dora finds work as a curator at the last remaining museum, where she seeks her long-lost brother. In the city, cats are highly revered. King's audiobook unfolds in a dreamlike fashion, with much character introduction and a myriad of short, significant moments. As the story progresses, the nature of the broken city and its main players emerges, capturing timely themes of systemic oppression. Throughout, Ireland does exceptional work in a commanding performance that provides a vivid canvas for listeners. She gives an expert's touch to the complicated proceedings. S.P.C.
