The best narrators disappear as you listen. The voice blends so smoothly with the story as the actor skillfully creates characters, manages emotions and paces drama that the listener no longer notices she is being read to. Megan Tusing accomplishes just this...
Narrator Megan Tusing does a great job capturing this engaging mystery....Tusing's narration imparts just the right amount of suspense.
Tusing does a masterful job voicing female characters such as Jansen and her youthful astrobiologist. She is equally adept with male characters, including a paranoid Space Force officer and an aged NASA administrator.
