Popular science-fiction writer and social commentator Ben Bova’s meditation on new life-extending technologies is engaging, and Stefan Rudnicki’s deep, rich voice adds resonance to the story. Bova’s unlikely heroes cross the United States in search of sanctuary, pursued by sinister government and corporate agents. Although Rudnicki is one of the great dramatic narrators of audiobooks, even he has difficulty with some of Bova’s less inspired dialogue. His tough-guy voices, in particular, lack authenticity. Still, he has an extraordinary power to evoke emotion and reflection. These qualities make him a good narrator for this book. F.C. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2014]
