    "Something is terribly wrong with these reviews"

    Overall

    I purchased this book based on a few of the best reviews I've ever seen. Wow! I thought people would have given it 6 stars if they could. They even said it was the best narrated they'd ever heard!

    Pah! This has got to be some kind of marketing ploy because I couldn't figure out why anyone would say these things about this audio book. I came back to read the reviews again because I thought I'd been dreaming. Turns out, there are a few reviews now that say the complete opposite of the glowing reviews that led me to get this book. They, like myself, are very suspicious of these wild praises on a book that could be a model for how not to narrate.

    The first story is almost impossible to follow unless you are working hard and trying not to breath. If you do, you miss words. The guy reads like he's in a reading race, and has a foreign accent on top of a british accent. He'll read the last word of one paragraph and the first of the next like they're both in the middle of one sentence. He doesn't seem to comprehend what he's reading. Add to that, the otherworld quality of the story, which uses odd phrases that take some effort to interpret, and it's just not worth it. I was interested in the characters, but after reading the real reviews, I'm through with this. I went ahead and confirmed that the stories don't really finish, and this is the better of the narrators. The other guy sounds like a game show announcer doing product descriptions. No exaggeration! It's the worst reading I've ever heard, with the exception of the first guy on this book.

    And the last part really is a commercial!!!! quote: "we can't say more without giving the story away".

    What a massive rip off. The only reason this doesn't get zero stars is that Audible makes you give it at least one.

  • "The Golden Age"

    2 of 2 helpful votes

    As a Robot Fan, An Asimov Fan and a Sci-Fi history fan, I had to get this. It starts out with a lengthy telling of the difference between this I, Robot and Asimov's I Robot. A little Science Fiction History that I enjoyed hearing. The story is dated, but it was a good story, that led to the robot as a good guy. The production has music which I felt added to the mood of the story. I know some people don't like added music, but I liked it.

    If you are a true Science Fiction Fan, you need this in your collection.

    A visionary whose writing broke through the boundaries of the science fiction genre, Philip K. Dick is regarded as a major figure of twentieth-century fiction. In 2007, he became the first science fiction writer to be included in the Library of America Series. Set in various dystopian futures, these stories explore such themes as time travel, artificial/alien intelligence, authority, knowledge and the use or control of it, memory, and the frighteningly malleable nature of what we call "reality."

    This is a collection of seven contemporary robot tales written by some of today's most acclaimed science fiction authors. A sentient war machine combs a beach for trinkets to create memorials for its fallen comrades in the Hugo Award-winning story, "Tideline", by Elizabeth Bear. In "Balancing Accounts", by James Cambias, a small-time independent robotic space tug is hired by a mysterious client for a voyage between two of Saturn's moons.
