Merissa Czyz's narration is pitch-perfect: her young-sounding voice really channels the characters, and her great diction enlivens the story.
BIRTHDAY ON MARS by Sara Schonfeld Audiofile Magazine
Merissa Czyz is the voice of the Mars rover CURIOSITY ... and even sings its "Happy Birthday to Me" song. Czyz is an unobtrusive narrator, letting the novelty of the birthday celebrant steal the show. Czyz adds emphasis to the notion that humans should be as curious as CURIOSITY is.
A sweet interplanetary message from a narrator who sounds for all the world like a younger version of the one in Markus Motum’s more seriously detailed Curiosity.
