Here’s the setup for this audiobook, narrated by an ensemble cast: A man named Thomas essentially kidnaps an astronaut named Kev and holds him on an abandoned military base. They have a connection that Kev struggles to recognize, but as the book moves along, this becomes clearer and clearer. The book is presented almost like a play, and the result is an engaging, raw blunt instrument that only happens to resemble a work of literature. MacLeod Andrews does the bulk of the narration, complemented by a cadre of terrific voices that inhabit the characters they portray. There’s enough salty language to cover a ton of peanuts, but little of it is gratuitous, given the story’s conceit and the author’s writing, which tends to be on the edgy side.
