Publisher's Summary

Please note: contains sensitive content.

In this scripted Audible Original, wisecracking marine biologist and astronaut Bee Guerrero has signed up for the trip of a lifetime: a series of dives deep into the pitch-black waters of Saturn’s moon, Enceladus. 

Set in the near-future when global climate catastrophe has forced humans to search for solutions on new planets, The Sea in the Sky chronicles two astronauts’ journey, in what could be the final NASA-sponsored mission to space. In their search for life, Bee and Ty navigate uncharted waters, take on incredible risks and confront difficult truths about themselves. What will they find at the bottom of it all? 

At times epic and intimate, laugh-out-loud funny and achingly soulful, The Sea in the Sky plumbs the depths of science and faith, triumph and failure. The Audible Original drama is told via daily "dispatches" sent from the space shuttle back to Earth, together with original music and sound design, a never-before-heard space rap, and a full cast of actors. 

Dive into a world you need to hear to believe.

A good ride

I wasn't sure about it at first. Parts feel pretty slow and similar, and to be honest I found B quite annoying in the get go. Then suddenly it grips you on an emotional rollercoaster and is hard to stop. Amazing voice acting, and a lot of truths to the human mind in this story. I liked it.

So impressed

I was unsure for the first 10mins or so but soon got hooked and finished the whole series within a few days. The voice acting, the story, the chemistry between characters, the character development, the twists, the overarching message, the spirituality of it all, the outlook on the universe and the secrets it holds - they were all done and portrayed so beautifully. This is the most beautiful, captivating and fresh story I have experienced in 2020. @Audible, thank you, please sponsor more like this one.

Wow

I was really impressed by the voice acting and the quality of production! I hope there will be more work if this calibre, I would pay a credit for this. I was very into the story and the dynamics between characters was keeping me engaged during the more day-to-day slower moments. That only brought more life and texture to the character. Thank you!

Escape

Being a commercial diver for 18 years I had my reservations about the story. I drove & listened. I was drawn deeper into the characters. Finally had to come home, put my ear buds in, turn off the lights. I dove with Bee. Thanks, we all need an escape.

Good performances But..

Not sure why the main character was so annoying. Bad writing. Good voice work. It's free at least.

Better than the sum of its parts.

There are a few places where the voice acting and the story could have been better, although they are still pretty good, but the overall experience is immersive and enjoyable.
