Inhaltsangabe

"Narrators James Fouhey and Briggon Snow give stellar performances in this quiet YA romance.... Both narrators authentically capture the ups and downs of teen romance and keep listeners engaged." (AudioFile Magazine)

Lauren Shippen's The Infinite Noise is a stunning, original debut based on her wildly popular and award-winning podcast The Bright Sessions.

Caleb Michaels is a 16-year-old champion running back. Other than that his life is pretty normal. But when Caleb starts experiencing mood swings that are out of the ordinary for even a teenager, his life moves beyond "typical".

Caleb is an Atypical, an individual with enhanced abilities. Which sounds pretty cool except Caleb's ability is extreme empathy - he feels the emotions of everyone around him. Being an empath in high school would be hard enough, but Caleb's life becomes even more complicated when he keeps getting pulled into the emotional orbit of one of his classmates, Adam. Adam's feelings are big and all-consuming, but they fit together with Caleb's feelings in a way that he can't quite understand.

Caleb's therapist, Dr. Bright, encourages Caleb to explore this connection by befriending Adam. As he and Adam grow closer, Caleb learns more about his ability, himself, his therapist - who seems to know a lot more than she lets on - and just how dangerous being an Atypical can be.

"What if the X-Men, instead of becoming superheroes, decided to spend some time in therapy?" (Vox on The Bright Sessions)

Like I'm a kid again

This book brings me so much joy. It's like back then when I read my first book. All the emotions are so intense I caught myself laughing out loud and making comments as if Caleb and Adam could hear me. It feels real and personal. All in all this book just took me in from page one and the voice actors are so good it feels almost like hearing a friend tell a story instead of listening to an audiobook. What got me most though were the deeply relatable and intimate topics. As someone with mental health issues, experiencing sensory overload AND depression, and also being a part of the LGBTQ community, I could relate to both Adam and Caleb on a level that even surprised me myself. And even with all these heavy topics it never felt like too much. I could laugh, I could cry, I could get angry and it felt so good. It's rare to get that in a book. Especially an audiobook. Thank you for that. I definitely highly recommend listening.

Solid story

Nice story but the ending is a bit rushed and not really making a conclusion.

Stay strange!

Lovely, exciting, heart-warming! Wonderful to listen to as an audiobook, matches perfectly with the podcast experience. I love that Briggon Snow speaks Caleb again, and I definitely enjoyed James Fouhey as Adam although I missed the original voice actor a little. The last fourth of the book is a little fast-paced, but that - in my eyes - hardly reduces the fun I had while listening to this. Congratulations to Lauren Shippen for the wonderful words she found to describe emotions. As a social worker, I might even try to transfer this to my future counselling. All in all, a wonderful book! Especially for people who listened to the original podcast, but certainly for everyone who thoroughly enjoys a teenage love story mixed with mental health issues and superpowers.
