Science Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1985

Having a female narrator is perfect for this story, told in the first person by Ellie Arraway, a brilliant scientist specializing in radio astronomy. Laurel Lefkow creates character accents in Russian, French, and a Southern drawl. The technical jargon comes as easily to her as to the author, making the fiction more believable as science that really could happen. The audiobook detours into romance, religion, philosophy, and mathematics (to name only a few disciplines) and will most likely please readers with an appetite for fantasy with substance.
