The Original Audiobook by Brandon Sanderson and Mary Robinette Kowal: A Riveting Tale of Identity and Survival

Hey there, Stephen Dale here. Last night, as the city around me hummed with the familiar buzz of technology, I nestled into my favorite armchair, headphones in place, ready to lose myself in the world of science fiction. With a click, I was transported into “The Original,” an audiobook that had me questioning the very essence of identity and existence.

In this gripping narrative by Brandon Sanderson and Mary Robinette Kowal, we’re thrust into a future where life is sustained through technology, and the concept of immortality is within arm’s reach. The nanites coursing through veins are a small price to pay for survival… until you realize your memories might be the cost.

Julia Whelan’s narration was nothing short of masterful, capturing every nuance of the struggle faced by Holly Winsted—or should I say, her replica? The tension between the two Hollies, each fighting for a life they believe to be rightfully theirs, had me on the edge of my seat. It’s a tale that echoes our own societal dance with technology: how much of ourselves are we willing to sacrifice for the promise of something greater?

For those just dipping their toes into the expansive ocean of Sanderson and Kowal’s creativity, “The Emperor’s Soul” and “The Lost Metal” are excellent starting points. But “The Original” is where their talents truly shine, blending human emotion with futuristic dilemmas.

And guess what? You don’t need nanites to access this thrilling adventure. Head over to, where you can download and listen to “The Original” for free. It’s a battle not just between two women but between mankind and the machines we’ve created. Who will triumph?

Until next time, keep those headphones close and your imagination open.

Happy listening,
