Description

Audible narration by Steven Strait (The Expanse)

What’s more frightening: Not knowing who you are? Or finding out? A Bram Stoker Award-winning author explores the answer in a chilling story about identity and human consciousness.

Imagine you’ve woken up in an unfamiliar room with no memory of who you are, how you got there, or where you were before. All you have is the disconnected voice of an attentive caretaker. Dr. Kuhn is there to help you - physically, emotionally, and psychologically. She’ll help you remember everything. She’ll make sure you reclaim your lost identity. Now answer one question: Are you sure you want to?

Paul Tremblay’s The Last Conversation is part of Forward, a collection of six stories of the near and far future from out-of-this-world authors. Each piece can be read or listened to in a single thought-provoking sitting.

Narrator too confusing

While I enjoyed the story line, it was hard work keeping track of which character was speaking as the narrator's voice kept the same pitch throughout the story. Wish I could have read this one.

Unclear narration detracts from the story

The setup of the story is very interesting and could be done in an absolutely stunning way, I'm sure, but I had a hard time tracking who was saying what because of the narrator's nearly unvaried droning. It's sad to say 'didn't finish' on a story this short, but I just couldn't take the narration. In what is essentially a conversation, you've got to have some voice differentiation between the characters.

I'll be finishing the story, but not in audio.

extremely monotone narration

somewhat predictable as a story. nothing Earth shattering here, take it or leave it, but the narration will take this average story and drag it into a real snoozer.

Ok

This was a long walk to get to the reveal. Audible would have benefitted from two voice performances for each part.

I kept wanting to learn more...

Great, very well-told story that weaves in suspense and wonder in a science fiction narrative that brings up questions we can ask ourselves today.

interesting premise

There's a lot here that reminds me of an early work by John Varney. A quick entertaining story.

A nice little quickie from Paul Tremblay

A nice little quickie from Paul Tremblay. Not earthshaking or groundbreaking but definitely entertaining from beginning to end.

Disturbing and Creepy

Paul Trembley does unsettling and creepy very well. He does not let up with his addition to the Forward series. He captures a very disturbing possibility in the future of science.
