Marilyn Johnson, read by Hillary Huber. Tantor Audio, , unabridged, 8 CDs, 9 hrs., $39.99 ISBN 978-1-4945-0807-4
Johnson takes a compelling jaunt into the world of archaeology to distinguish the prized artifacts from the debris, highlighting the hard and often thankless work of archaeologists. Reader Huber does a fantastic job of capturing Johnson’s witty, conversational prose, which both informs and entertains listeners. She adequately narrates the technical details and information with a balanced mixture of emphasis and pacing, and she embraces the author’s quirky asides narrating with the perfect amount of confident sass and exuberance. She comes across as the authentic voice of the text. A Harper hardcover. (Dec.)
