BEASTLY The 40,000-Year Story of Animals and Us

by | Read by Pippa Haywood

Contemporary Culture • 16.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Author Keggie Carew asks listeners to reconsider how they relate to animals, starting out with anecdotes that fascinate and shifting to opinions she herself characterizes as strong. Pippa Haywood narrates with her British accent, switching briefly to an Eastern European one to tell the story of a mischievous raven and later taking on the voice of Pigeon Pete, a bird trainer. Haywood sounds amazed with wonders such as the world's largest fish-breeding colony, off Antarctica. She delivers emphatic voicework to go with Carew's opinions, sounding sarcastic for Carew's impression of a natural history museum that emphasizes its café and stern when Carew criticizes a wolf study's use of traps. Haywood puts rising anger into her voice as she delivers Carew's skepticism about a possible Mars settlement. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2023]
