The Burning

A Short Taste of Dystopian Sci-Fi

Review by: The Audiobook ReviewThe Burning by Wayne Kyle Spitzer was an intriguing listen, albeit one I found a little hard to follow. I had suspected as much after reading the blurb because the stories are set in an established world which I was unfamiliar with. The premise is quite interesting though, and I'd love to see a full-length story set in this world. I assume the other books in the series explain some of the backstory I'm missing, though at only an hour or so long I suspect they may leave me wanting more as well.

Even without knowing the history of the world though, Spitzer did a good job of grabbing my interest and keeping it for these two stories.

The narration by Tim Shoesmith was excellent, with no obvious issues and a voice that matched the story. All up, an interesting duo of tales that I'd certainly encourage to become a full-length novel. I think there's a lot to explore in this world.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I have not let this gift affect nor influence my opinions of this audiobook and have left an honest review.
