Professional reviews

"This is an extraordinary audiobook, and Ralph Lister's narration is splendid. Lister seamlessly gives talking sand cats and hissing jackals persuasive vocalizations and nuanced speech. He does spot-on British accents in this futuristic reimagining of Noah's Arc. Bill Broun's fascinating novel takes place in 2052 London, portraying a dystopian future in which humans have killed off nearly all wildlife. This audiobook follows the trials and exploits of Cuthbert Handley, an addled 90-year-old antihero who can talk with animals and sets out to free the last survivors from the London Zoo--the sole remaining zoo in the world. Lister is a vocal chameleon, equally adroit with dozens of voices. His talent is well displayed in this immersive and haunting tale. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
