Audible Editor Reviews

A sobering piece of fictional journalism, 2084 presents a dystopian future where global warming has taken a terrible toll on the world. Told in the form of retroactive oral histories by 18 interview subjects, these stories are saturated with loss and regret. Narrator Gary Dikeos' intuitive performance isolates the emotions of each speaker, using variations in the depth of his voice and a subtle use of accents to create distinct personalities that will linger in listeners' minds. 2084 is a call to action to prevent an all-too-possible future.

    "Interesting Story and a bit scary if it comes true"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The book itself was interesting but the audio quality wasn't great and the reader was not good. I would have enjoyed it more if I had just read it.


    Would you recommend 2084 to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend that they read this book, the reader isn't very good.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gary Dikeos’s performances?

    No


    Was 2084 worth the listening time?

    Yeah I found the story interesting.
