The Captain’s Log – the test (Sylvain Neuvel)

Ahoy there me mateys!  I really enjoyed this author’s Themis Files trilogy and knew I wanted to read whatever he wrote next.  The test is an immigration dystopia.  The book is only 112 pages and I chose to listen to the audiobook version.  It runs about 2 hours and 12 minutes and I listened to it at almost double speed.  I thought the narrator Neil Shah did a very good job and I avidly listened to this one.  I am not going to get into the plot at all because the reader should experience it for themselves.  I truly felt for Idir.  But suffice to say that this was certainly interesting, scary in ramifications, and ultimately sad.  I recommend this author’s works if ye haven’t read them yet.  I will continue to follow his career with interest.  Arrr!

Normally I put the blurb here but I highly suggest ye go into this one blind.
