“Dream Sky” ends with a cliff-hanger that almost irresistibly compels us to immediately purchase the next entry in the Project Eden series. Prepare y..Show More »ourself to budget for two audiobooks in quick succession: You will want to know what happens next. Technically, 𝙩𝙝𝙚o𝙧𝙚𝙩𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮, you can listen to any of the Project Eden audiobooks without having listened to its predecessors; because author Brett Battles does us the courtesy of including, at the beginning of each episode, a “What Went Before” chapter that summarizes the story so far. However, I think that you will miss a lot of this saga if you don’t start at the beginning, with “Sick”. The Project Eden series is really one long story published in several pieces, of which “Dream Sky” is the sixth piece.
I can’t explain why this series causes such addictive, compulsive listening. It deals with a pretty scary — if far-fetched — scenario: What if a nefarious cabal of ego-centric, power-hungry conspirators hatched a plot to rid the world of most of its human population, leaving only them and their hand-picked survivors to re-build civilization according to their own specifications? I, personally, have trouble with scary, dark audiobook stories; because I get so emotionally sucked into the plots. Nonetheless, this series kept me listening, despite its “Yikes!” factor. I was rooting for the Good Guys and hating the despicable Bad Guys obsessively all the way through.
Maybe narrator Macleod Andrews had something to do with my relentless listening to the Project Eden series. Mr. Andrews has the rare Acting Gift: He is one of those natural-born actors, who can change voices and accents so effortlessly that he makes it sound easy. For me, the narrator counts every bit as much as the story. A good narrator can rescue a mediocre story, and can influence me to purchase an audiobook that I might not otherwise consider.
I recommend “Dream Sky” to all thriller-lovers, with the proviso that you first listen to its predecessors in the Project Eden series.
