Saskia Maarleveld captures a specific kind of magical realism in her performance, which is perfect for this audiobook. It's the 1800s, and Aubrey is on the move. A sickness manifests within her, triggered by a mysterious puzzle ball. To stay alive, she must keep moving, literally traveling the globe. Throughout her journey she encounters mysterious doors, opening to an otherworldly library. The dreamlike production has a nonlinear narration that moves from one fascinating location to another, including Paris, the Trans-Siberian Railway, and the Congo. Maarleveld's voice achieves a kind of ethereal quality that fits this story of the compelling characters Aubrey encounters along her journey. Her performance casts a spell.
