Science Fiction • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1998

Mystery writer Walter Mosley makes a departure toward science fiction in this clever story of an ethereal blue light that comes to Earth and transforms several of its inhabitants into beings with perfect awareness of their purpose in life. If only we were all so lucky! But there is a burden with this new vision, and Tucker Smallwood adds fine vocal characterization to the many stories of those touched by the light, as it were. Some listeners might be distracted by the almost constant background music and sound effects. (For example, when a baby is in a scene, we hear gurgling; when someone is outdoors, we hear birds chirping. . . ) Overall, Mosley's story is intriguing enough and Smallwood's professionalism more than apparent.
