I'd read this book years ago and always liked it but hearing it made me love it.
It's sci-fi at it's best with a heart and great characters which is really rare.
The narrator Romy Nordlinger is fabuluous and helped me believe some pretty far out situations by grounding them in reality and very strong characterizations - and she's easy to listen to.
I'm going to listen to this whole series!!!
