Science Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Legendary science fiction novelist Isaac Asimov offers this visionary story of Biron Farrell, a University of Earth student who becomes the central target in an intergalactic conspiracy that takes the life of his father and sends him into the far depths of space. Read by narrator Stephen Thorne, the story comes to life in an intimate reading as honest and straightforward as it is underplayed. Thorne doesn't try to dazzle listeners with cheap thrills, such as phony alien accents or manufactured tension. He simply takes Asimov's well-crafted prose and allows it to lead the way. His genuine reading will touch listeners with its sheer simplicity. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2008]
