Description

"Narrators James Fouhey and Briggon Snow give stellar performances in this quiet YA romance.... Both narrators authentically capture the ups and downs of teen romance and keep listeners engaged." (AudioFile Magazine)

Lauren Shippen's The Infinite Noise is a stunning, original debut based on her wildly popular and award-winning podcast The Bright Sessions.

Caleb Michaels is a 16-year-old champion running back. Other than that his life is pretty normal. But when Caleb starts experiencing mood swings that are out of the ordinary for even a teenager, his life moves beyond "typical".

Caleb is an Atypical, an individual with enhanced abilities. Which sounds pretty cool except Caleb's ability is extreme empathy - he feels the emotions of everyone around him. Being an empath in high school would be hard enough, but Caleb's life becomes even more complicated when he keeps getting pulled into the emotional orbit of one of his classmates, Adam. Adam's feelings are big and all-consuming, but they fit together with Caleb's feelings in a way that he can't quite understand.

Caleb's therapist, Dr. Bright, encourages Caleb to explore this connection by befriending Adam. As he and Adam grow closer, Caleb learns more about his ability, himself, his therapist - who seems to know a lot more than she lets on - and just how dangerous being an Atypical can be.

"What if the X-Men, instead of becoming superheroes, decided to spend some time in therapy?" (Vox on The Bright Sessions)

Very sweet story in an uncertain storytelling

In no way am I sorry to have had bought this audio book. After listening to the Bright Sessions podcast and wanting a bit more about Caleb and Adam, this story was exactly what I was looking for.
But it came with the same inexperienced scenarisation that I found in the podcast. In both the story is great, but somehow told in a hesitant fashion, using only a handful of storytelling devices that become a bit repetitive at some point. For instance, in the book, the connector between two scenes is almost always an ellipsis, which make the narrative a bit disjointed, and lessen the impact of important events. Those feel like first books mistakes.
That being said, as I mentioned I really enjoyed the story itself, and if you’re not picky like me about cleverly crafted storytelling, you’ll most definitely have a good 9 hours :)

A MUST for Bright Sessions Lovers

I opted to listen to the audiobook, I thought it was only fitting since I fell in love with Adam/Caleb via podcast. I was so glad that Briggon Snow reprised his role of Caleb. This is a sweet background look into the goings-on of Cadam behind the scenes of the Bright Sessions. Made me relisten to the Bright Sessions. I missed these characters so much.

Even if you haven't listened to the Bright Sessions (highly recommend that too), it's still a great LGBTQ book for young adults.

Absolutely beautiful

Voice acting is superb and it’s utter perfection. They way emotions are described makes the experience visceral and a truly immersive experience

Wow

I weld all day and its hot and miserable and for the past two days listening to this book i felt like i was falling in love again too. My fiancé and i are going on 3 years and this book reminded me of the butterflies we all chase. Please don’t disappear, you are an amazing writer and i hope for so much more from you. I listened to the bright sessions and felt for caleb and adam then but this really gave me the back story i needed. I cant wait to hear from all of you again. Keep it up.

Incredible but...

The book was hands-down incredible... until about 90% in. Then it just fizzled out. The characters got all this scary information, and absolutely nothing happened or was even done about it. It was so weird and such a missed opportunity. It was kind of like the author just got bored and said, “oh well, I’ll just wrap it up as quickly as possible with no resolution.” Kind of a bummer.

A lot of Emotions.... In a Good Way

Enjoyed this, the only draw back is how short it was. Look forward to more Bright session novels and to learn more about this universe that Shippen has created. I fell in love with the characters and kept wanting to know more. This is worth the read/listen.

Too SHORT!

I loved it it took a while to get to the amazing part but once it did it was great and then it just finished abruptly I felt like this was just the tip of the iceberg!

Loved this book!

I was a big fan of the podcast The Bright Sessions, which this book is a spinoff of. So I had to preorder this and listen right when it came out. Did not disappoint. It’s a cute romance mixed with coming-of-age superpowers! Great narrators for the two characters.

Like I'm a kid again

This book brings me so much joy. It's like back then when I read my first book. All the emotions are so intense I caught myself laughing out loud and making comments as if Caleb and Adam could hear me. It feels real and personal. All in all this book just took me in from page one and the voice actors are so good it feels almost like hearing a friend tell a story instead of listening to an audiobook.

What got me most though were the deeply relatable and intimate topics. As someone with mental health issues, experiencing sensory overload AND depression, and also being a part of the LGBTQ community, I could relate to both Adam and Caleb on a level that even surprised me myself.
And even with all these heavy topics it never felt like too much. I could laugh, I could cry, I could get angry and it felt so good.

It's rare to get that in a book. Especially an audiobook.

Thank you for that.
I definitely highly recommend listening.

Solid story

Nice story but the ending is a bit rushed and not really making a conclusion.

Stay strange!

Lovely, exciting, heart-warming! Wonderful to listen to as an audiobook, matches perfectly with the podcast experience. I love that Briggon Snow speaks Caleb again, and I definitely enjoyed James Fouhey as Adam although I missed the original voice actor a little.
The last fourth of the book is a little fast-paced, but that - in my eyes - hardly reduces the fun I had while listening to this.
Congratulations to Lauren Shippen for the wonderful words she found to describe emotions. As a social worker, I might even try to transfer this to my future counselling.

All in all, a wonderful book! Especially for people who listened to the original podcast, but certainly for everyone who thoroughly enjoys a teenage love story mixed with mental health issues and superpowers.
