If you could sum up The Empathy Exams in three words, what would they be?
Smart, philosophical, creepy
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Empathy Exams?
I am only half way through the book, but the 2nd essay is skin crawling, literally.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Coleen Marlo?
Anyone. She has a strange, annoying voice that sounds digitally generated. She also isn't consistent in her pronunciations. Seemed unrehearsed to me, and I found myself distracted from the narrative, wanting to turn her off.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The first essay will remain with you.

This is beautiful writing, but I'm hearing through a metallic sounding robot. I have two hours to go but don't think I can finish because this narrators voice is so deeply unpleasant.

It seems to me that there are two ways to listen and be enriched by this book, these essays. She is an excellent writer who uses Rich turns of phrase and intelligent, poetic voice to communicate the stories themselves is one. The content of the essays; their ability to provoke both thought and emotion is the other.
