Love in the Time of TelepresenceReview by: The Audiobook Review
Bunn-O by Kate Tighe-Pigott is a short, engaging story of a family, a world apart but trying to remain connected through technology. On one side, the husband, a major tech geek, enlists the help of grad student to build a telepresence device out of a plastic toy bunny.
The wife (and narrator) of the story is initially on board, but as the weeks and months drag on becomes ever isolated and disillusioned by the whole set up. Pulled in ever more confusing directions, until the final, dramatic scene. I caught myself holding my breath through the last minute or so.
Superbly narrated by Emily Bauer, I found her easy to listen to and thoroughly pleasing as the voice of the narrator.
Yes, this is a short review but so was the story at just 50 minutes. Don't let the short timespan put you off though; there's a hell of a lot of story packed in.
