Listeners may either love or hate this latest from Max Berry. Love it because of the unusual plot--centered in the present day but futuristic in concept. The story features two warring factions of "Poets," people who can control others and events with words. Listeners will also love Zach Appelman's performance of the male characters, especially that of Wil Jamison, who hails from Australia and is caught between the two factions. Once Appelman gets going, his performance is like an express train. However, listeners may hate the other main character, Emily, as played by Heather Corrigan, who makes her sound whiny and younger than the character is supposed to be. Notwithstanding the criticism, those who have patience will prevail. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2013]
