Glad I came back to Walter Jon Williams

I haven’t tried anything by Walter Jon Williams in years. The last I had read was “Voice of the Whirlwind” over a decade ago. I am glad I tried Metropolitan. It took me a bit to get into and understand the books world of plasm, its relationship to the structures of humans, and the politics and bureaucracy of the main character’s day to day life. But once underway I began to really enjoy the story. I really hope it’s sequel is released soon as an audio edition.

The performance is very good. I really enjoy Emily Woo Zeller’s unique portrayal of the various characters. I hope she narrates the next book if and when it shows up here. If I had any complaints it would be the very quiet almost AMSR like whisper of the narrative voice which I struggled with at first. However, as the story progresses and more characters are introduced, each voiced by her in a unique way, this was less of an issue for me.

One of My Favorite Worlds

Mixing alchemy, geomancy science, math, mystery, mythology and dystopian socio-economic themes, and read by the ever smooth Emily Woo Zeller, this is one of my favorite worlds. The characters are well developed, and the heroine of the story is both admirable and believably flawed. The plot is well thought out, we follow Aiah on her attempt to solve the mystery of a seeming large source of plasm, while navigating the pitfalls of politics, personal finances, upper management and dealing with the larger than life Constantine.

This is really unique World building by Walter Jon Williams, and I'm glad the book is now available on Audible, and such a well crafted audio production.
