Fabulous story and production!
What a mesmerizing story. From the first lines, the narrator’s haunting voice draws you in: “Growing up, I didn’t care for fairytale characters. The one I disliked the most was Sleeping Beauty. Unfortunately, now I’ve turned into one. It’s the Sleeping part that frightens me…”
You enter the mind of a young woman named Ash, who finds herself beaten and raped, lying in the hospital in a coma. She can’t remember what happened to her but – what an original idea! – she can listen to every conversation around her. She can also think, and here the narrator’s voice gathers the force of someone trapped and speechless, yet still capable of intense observation, even irony.
Heather Hogan’s great narration conveys Ash’s frustration listening to the nurse – “she must think I look like a mummy in my bandages” – and to the monotonous beeping monitor, and to her mother being hostile to her boyfriend Michael. You’ll get shivers hearing Ms. Hogan do the Russian-accented brute who did this atrocity to Ash...in fact the narration swoops through the whole range of human emotion. Bravo to Heather Hogan, and to this thrilling story’s author, Uvi Poznansky, who has delivered a flawless audiobook production. I enjoyed it immensely – five stars!
