Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ruth Sillers, Richard Morant

Young Adult • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Ruth Sillers flawlessly narrates the lion’s share of the story of an unusual teenaged girl, Sym, who unwittingly embarks on a wild expedition to the Antarctic with her lunatic Uncle Victor. Sillers conveys youth, intelligence, and naïveté with elegance and perfect British diction. Captain “Titus” Oates (known for his famous last words to explorer Robert Falcon Scott—“I am just going outside and may be some time”) exists in her imagination as both a friend and soul mate. Richard Morant as Oates is perfect—that gentle, romantic, and chivalrous voice in Sym’s head is truly a voice to fall in love with. Sym (with Oates’s help) must use everything she has ever learned about Antarctica to save her life. A.B.
