Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Carol Cowan, Michael Hanson

Science Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1986

This richly textured adventure/romance is set in a distant future when humans make war and peace on an interstellar scale. Two star-crossing lovers from contending civilizations are thrown together in a survival situation, and...a series is born. An outstanding book becomes a distinguished audiobook through the voices of Cowan and Hanson. Even listeners who don't favor multi-voiced readings will have to concede that this pair is a true ensemble, performing with remarkable smoothness. Cowan carries the burden of the story, narrator plus female characters, in a rich voice she modulates with endless subtlety, carefully shaping each phrase, never throwing away a word, yet never sounding studied. Hanson, also rich and flexible, inserts the male voices without ever breaking rhythm. Go thou and buy this, for great is your reward. J.N.
