Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jessica Almasy, Marc Vietor, Oliver Wyman, Anthony Haden Salerno

Science Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Would humans ever submit to domination by a being of unlimited intelligence, even a benevolent one? Robert Sawyer has written an amazing book that explores what would happen if the Internet gained prescience and decided to help mankind by ruling it. This is one of those works that is vastly improved by an audio interpretation by multiple readers. The shining star of this near-perfect production is Jessica Almasy as the sweet teenager who introduces WebMind to the world. Her equal is Marc Vietor, the voice selected by the machine because of his brilliant work reading audiobooks. (Good inside joke there.) This story, the audiobook equivalent of a page-turner, challenges the listener to pick a side: human or machine. The answer is surprising. M.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2012]
