Description

Audible narration by Jason Isaacs (Star Trek: Discovery)

What will become of our self-destructed planet? The answer shatters all expectations in this subversive speculation from the Hugo Award-winning author of the Broken Earth trilogy.

An explorer returns to gather information from a climate-ravaged Earth that his ancestors, and others among the planet’s finest, fled centuries ago. The mission comes with a warning: a graveyard world awaits him. But so do those left behind - hopeless and unbeautiful wastes of humanity who should have died out eons ago. After all this time, there’s no telling how they’ve devolved. Steel yourself, solider. Get in. Get out. And try not to stare.

N. K. Jemisin’s Emergency Skin 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.

NK Jemisin is a genius

The prose on this one was interesting, as you never hear the voice of the protagonist. Like always, the author explores the things we take for granted in our society. It's a good intro into the author's work of you're unfamiliar.

Forward Collection

This was also one of my favorite stories in the entire Forward collection. I like how it was told and I loved the concept of getting rid of those with a sense of entitlement. Very well done.

Blown away!

The amount of inventiveness and detail in this story is staggering. Pride excellence. I want to read the written version because the plot sometimes went too fast for me to catch everything. I will definitely listen to this audiobook again.

Fantastic freebie!

The premise behind this short story was engaging, and it was very well executed. Like the collection it is apart of, it is a very forward thinking piece. The narration is great, and if you can pick it up for free I highly recommend.

Amazing narrator

The story was good but the narrator made it amazing. I am not sure if the story was really meant to be funny but the narrator made it so!

Love this one

So interesting that the cognoscenti had it wrong. That happens a lot! Of course, I'm thinking of "climate change" today.

Required Listening!

Like all great science fiction, this story starts with an all too real reality and pushes forward thinking to an ultimate end and in doing so creates a cautionary tale. Beyond this Jemisin offers a profoundly simple resolution to our current and the character’s future problems, take care of one another. This is a long held belief across the which is thwarted by narrow, selfish thinking. So, hear it again. May voices never cease the saying of it and may hearts take it to mnd

Great Listen!

I really enjoyed the idea that the MC never actually says anything, it is all inferred.Very effective story as audio. I had not looked at the book. I suspect it would be all dialogue, Still the main character's dialogue would be inferred.
