This was an original and interesting sci fi story. I thought the author does a great job of world and character building. The concept of Cleans was really interesting and, well, thought provocing. The narrator does a good job of bringing this futuristic world to life. I just wish it was longer.
This author builds an interesting world in this book, it is a futuristic world, but one that exists predominantly due to aliens known as the Aeons who help to enable telepathic powers in the human race.
All is not perfect in this world though, there still exist crimes and the ultimate punishment for a human is to be turned into what is known as a clean, all memories and personality being wiped away from the person leaving little more than shells that are bought and sold. Jethro recognises one of these cleans as somebody he used to know and he is driven to try and bring her back to her real self.
This book is quite a short one and as such it is more difficult to connect with the characters, but the narrator helps greatly in this respect with his performance adding nicely to the overall story with pleasant and distinctive tone.
Overall, this was a good starting point to a series with regards to world-building, but with the need to lay the ground rules for this world, it might have needed a bit more time for the story.
