Professional reviews

"When handled well by a voice actor, an unreliable narrator is a delight--the narrator makes the listener believe in the character and then slowly reveals that all is not as it seems. Such is the work of Michael Curran-Dorsano as he narrates from the point of view of Caden Bosch, who becomes absorbed in a journey to the deepest point on Earth, in the Marianas Trench. When the teen finds himself aboard a strange ship in the ocean area known as Challenger Deep, he can't tell if it's really happening--or if he's losing his mind. Meanwhile, his friends and family grow increasingly concerned. Curran-Dorsano's soft voice works well as the internal voice for the teenaged Bosch. He keeps to a steady rhythm while also being capable of shifting his voice for other characters. L.E. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
