I was interested in hearing how Connie Willis is narrating her own stories. Since it wasn't expensive I gave it a try.
First, she is no professional narrator. This said, she does a real nice job reading her stories.
I'm a fan of her long, elaborate novels, but I enjoyed the short stories very much. They bring new ideas and theories and are mostly funny.
After having read mostly Connie Willis "Timetravel" novels before, the plot was a bit one-dimensional and the character of Kildy remained unbelievable to me.
This said, I enjoyed the reading a lot after I adjusted my (too) high expectations for this much shorter novella. Dennis Boutsikaris did a good job differentiating the characters and the dialog between Rob and Kildy sparked and drove the story. One of the highlights for me are always the quotes at the beginning of each chapter.
This is my favorite science fiction short story of all time. The audiobook is well worth the money, but at times the narrator does a poor job conveying emotion without going a little over the top, which tends to distract from the story.
