The best views of the valley
This short but satisfying story is told in a first person monologue by Lewis, who, with his Karen, has travelled to holiday in the one place left in the world where the air temperature was below 77 farenheit. A peek into the future.
It is a poignant story, well read by Noah Lee Margetts, whose soft but gruff voice liltingly tells Lewis's story, his voice conveying the emotions felt. Very quick to read, it is both lovely and gives pause for thought.
