Enthralling! Must listen!!

What made the experience of listening to Vacuum County the most enjoyable?

The narrator used an array of nuanced character voices to reflect a detailed and diverse universe with idiosyncratic and unusual characters. The scenarios are so weird and yet so realist that the story, much like the county, sucks you in and keeps you there, pondering the whys and wherefores.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Verity. Enjoy her quirky internal voice in the first person sections.

What about Kelly D Clear’s performance did you like?

Distinct character voices and accents make this vivid small county come to life. Natural and direct storytelling! Very compelling and easy to listen to. The musical performances included within the story were also a pleasant surprise.

If you could rename Vacuum County, what would you call it?

I like the title... but maybe Power and Posession?

Any additional comments?

Intriguing and very well written and performed. Well worth the listen. Gets you thinking about the role of judicial and political systems and the influence they have over our lives.
