Narrator Meredith Mitchell twists listeners into knots with Cristin Terrill’s time-loop adventure. Her smooth voice calmly describes the torture that Em and Finn undergo as they attempt to time travel away from their captor, “the Doctor,” to undo his work, which ruins the future. Mitchell captures the emotional anguish Em feels as she struggles to reconcile the Doctor’s past and present natures. She also grounds the story with Finn’s humor and compassion. Navigating the overlapping time loops and flashbacks is challenging, but Mitchell provides clarity. However, when characters scream or yell, Mitchell’s voice hits the upper limits of the audio’s volume levels, which can draw listeners out of the moment. Overall, though, Mitchell successfully evokes Terrill’s powerful themes of love, loyalty, and the greater good. C.A. SYNC 2014 © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2014]
