Overall Performance
Narration
Story

Robin Sachs' superlative narration

As I mentioned the my review of Bone Machines, I am the author of this book, so my review is about the performance rather than the narrative (allowing for the immodest star rating, since that field is required to submit a review). Robin Sachs does an incredible job here, as an actor, a voice artists with an incredible range, and he captures the flavour and the tone of the book perfectly. Blackstone Audio are my heroes for taking these books and I am really proud to be in their line. Robin's performance of the Indian Doctor, Devindra Prasaad is simply wonderful, and has to be my favourite characterisation in the book. Robin will be missed.
