A thought provoking and internal journey of More
This is a book and story in the science fiction genre, and there is somewhat of a science fiction vibe and atmosphere to this first work of Sarah Jessica Curry. But I candidly found this soul searching and enlightening piece to be more of a blend of self-enlightenment, positive self-imaging, and uplifting aspects of life rather than a more science fiction or fantasy piece.
This piece is in three distinct sections, which occur serially in chapters. The three distinct story arcs are the story, the aim, and the life. Life is self-affirming poetry narrated by author Curry. One unique and lovely aspect of listening to SJ Curry reading her own poetry is that you can actually hear her turn the pages as she reads. She has a good narrative voice to listen to, and so do the other two narrators for the different sections, K.S. Lee for the story and Isaac Vega for the Aim sections. Together, they do make an enthralling listen.
This is a short work, not an epic saga. It is about an hour and a half of listening.
At first, I was a little put off because I kept saying, "This is not science fiction. Where's the science fiction?" to myself. But then, I did a mental reset and said to myself, "Just listen to the narrators. Go with the concept, listen to what they're saying." Once I reframed the piece a bit, it was easier to get into what Emerging Light was all about.
The concept of putting the listener outside the usual frame of reference, as if they are above the planet's sphere and looking down on it, almost like being in orbit, was a good juxtaposition for the three parts of the narrative.
One thing that I also found really tied the whole concept together was Sarah's epilogue, or endpiece, explaining what led her to write Emerging Light. It was a powerful way, having listened to the work, to tie it all together and make it meaningful.
So if you step outside the genre box a wee bit and realize that this is not science fiction or fantasy in the traditional sense but more in the vein of self-enlightenment and self-fulfillment, this is very good work indeed.

This was an interesting story, it was entertaining and thought-provoking at times.
The narration was good.
I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

LOVED THIS BOOK!
Had I been scrolling for my next listen, I would have bypassed this book because the title sounds like science fiction to me. It definitely is NOT that! It is a thoughtfully woven tapestry of a story (The Story), self awareness (Aim) and poetic segments without the intimidation of poetry. I can’t fully describe it, not only to avoid spoilers, but because I want to listen again. Next time I may string together just The Story segments, then the Aim segments another time. For random, uplifting bites I’ll dip into the various other segments that are not The Story or the Aim segments.
Also interesting is the audible turning of pages to distinguish between segments. For a long time lover of books, it was nice to hear the turning of pages!
The Story, the Aim and the other sections are read by 3 different people (one being the author). Each does an exceptional job, adding to the pleasure of the book.
I was tempted to race through the book but made myself slow down and savor it. I’m so glad that I did and I look forward to listening to it again, likely more than once.
