The Illuminae Files: Book #1
By Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Narrated by: Olivia Taylor Dudley, Lincoln Hoppe, Johnathan McClain, Kimberly Farr, Donnabella Mortel, Matthew Frow, Ryan Gesell, Sile Bermingham, Beata Pozniak, Jolene Kim, Emma Bering & Full Cast
Length: 11 hours 39 minutes
“The most innovative, exciting work of science fiction--maybe even book in general--that I've ever read. Snarky teenagers, twisted AI, plague on a spaceship, and a stunningly unique dossier storytelling template. A great start to an amazing trilogy and an entire PRODUCTION of an audiobook. All three are basically radio plays with their multiple (returning) narrators, SFX, and creative incorporation of abstract pages. If there was a series I'd recommend experiencing in both print and audio, it's this one.”Sam, Phoenix Books
