Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

[Lamia] has to be one of the best voice actors that I've heard, easily transitioning between different characters and helping distinguish between them, always clear and concise. Her contribution was certainly a benefit to the novel. SciFiChick.com
Narrator Jenna Lamia brilliantly brings to life one of the most empty -- literally -- young women in fiction Booklist
Narrator Jenna Lamia, who has a fresh, youthful-sounding voice, assumes the role of the confused teen. Lamia reads with a strong sense of believability, capturing the tone of a female adolescent with perfection. AudioFile Magazine
The audiobook, ably narrated by Lamia, conveys Jenna's growing sense of dread as she discovers the extent to which her parents have gone to save her life after the accident. The delivery is quiet and almost detached throughout the first part of the audio. Jenna's growing sense of dread is mirrored in the increasingly emotional tones taken on by the narrator. Teri Lesesne, VOYA
Narrator Jenna Lamia, who has a fresh, youthful-sounding voice, assumes the role of the confused teen. Lamia reads with a strong sense of believability, capturing the tone of a female adolescent with perfection. AudioFile
Narrator Jenna Lamia excels at evoking the haunting, yet detached way that Jenna begins to connect the events in her life. Combining science fiction, medical mystery, and teen relationships into an excellent package that is satisfying from beginning to end, this is a must-have for all collections. School Library Journal
It's hard to imagine any reader doing as fine a job with this audio as Lamia. Her vocal tone is faultless throughout, whether she is self-reflecting or interacting with the other impeccably voiced characters. There were moments during the sometimes-chilling narration when it was quite literally breathtaking. Jenna is believably torn, confused, angry, and cautiously hopeful during her recovery, growth and ultimate shocking realization of the truth about her accident and the subsequent steps her parents took to save her. The bonus interview with the author is as engaging and though provoking as Jenna Fox's story. Ideal for book discussions and group listening. KLIATT, Starred Review
...Lamia becomes the transparent agent of Jenna's story: she leads the listener along that path by keeping her voice continually in the now, her nuanced, authentic teen inflection reflecting Jenna's newly won proficiency with language and her gradual decoding of the emotions and motives of her limited circle of family and friends. Lamia holds the rare gift of communicating not only the words on the page but also the punctuation and white space, infusing all with emotion. Listeners are taken beyond the book by the inclusion of a bonus interview with Pearson, which provides the gripping description of the author's driving force behind the writing. Horn Book Magazine
“Jenna Lamia delivers another outstanding understated, yet absolutely riveting performance in The Adoration of Jenna Fox. 5MinutesForBooks.com
