Do You Dream of Terra-Two?
- By: Temi Oh
- Narrated by: Nneka Okoye
- Length: 14 hrs and 19 mins
A century ago, scientists theorised that a habitable planet existed in a nearby solar system. Today, 10 astronauts will leave a dying Earth to find it. Four are decorated veterans of the 20th century’s space race. And six are teenagers, graduates of the exclusive Dalton Academy, who’ve been in training for this mission for most of their lives. It will take the team 23 years to reach Terra-Two. Twenty-three years spent in close quarters. Twenty-three years with no-one to rely on but each other. Twenty-three years with no rescue possible, should something go wrong. And something always goes wrong.
Are We Nearly There Yet?

An absolutely wonderful narrative, beautifully told. A charecter driven sci-fi reminiscent of Ishiguro's work. Oh's charecters are brilliant, compelling, and flawed in the best possible way. A coming of age story set in space. Oh poses sharp and interesting questions, seamlessly juggling the huge broad questions of society with the more individual personal perspective allowing them to interplay and inform each eachother.
WonderfuIy performed, I can't wait to listen to Terra 2 again and again.
And I at least will be looking out for whatever Temi Oh writes next!
