This is a great story. I read the book at least three times when I was younger. The story is still wonderful, it's the reader that made me not finish the audio version. The main problem is his voicing of the aliens. I assume the reader attempts to sound like what a talking elephant would sound like. The problem is you can't understand everything the characters are saying. More importantly, the readers pronunciations of the alien names are unintelligible. It was impossible for me to keep up with which alien was talking or which one was being referenced. I was very much looking forward. to an audible release of one of my favorite books and now that it's here it is un-listenable. Very sad. At least Lucifer's Hammer lived up to all my expectations.
Still tops. Read this years ago, still great. I thought the narrator was excellent and did a fantastic job handling multiple characters to include a number of aliens and a variety of accents. How he kept them all straight is a wonderful.
Narration of alien accent was believable but difficult to understand sometimes because of pronunciation.
Most memorable moment was the reporter's indecision and quest for glory.
loved it but i always do when the good guys win. Another great book ftom a out standing team of writers. Can we expect a sequel to the book. What happens next did they call off the attack?
I loved when I was a kid. Now the way they dealt with women seems dated.
The narration was poor. I didn't care for his portrayal of some of the female characters. The voicing of John and Carrie Underwood made them sound like ignorant hicks. They aren't sympathetic characters, but still.
Read the book while at sea (USN) in the late 80's. The Cold War with the Soviets at that time does come through in the story. I digress. Great book - read or audible. Must read/listen.
