Great narration, great story, this book still works today and I can recommend it.
The story doesn't drag, none of the bloviation some tales in this genre have.
It keeps a steady entertaining pace.
Say something about yourself!
An outstanding book for its time. It was easy to deal with the technology differences back in the 1950s, but I have never been a big fan of the societal morays of that time. The narration is very good and there is plenty of action. Overall, not a bad listen.
Very entertaining and interesting. It really makes you think what would happen in the event of nuclear war or another devastation.
Sorry I didn't read in early 1960's when I was a teenager! Yet probably Better now that I am 67?
This was required reading in high school, and I decided to listen to it again as an adult. If anything, the story is more compelling from the perspective of a grown-up instead of a student. There were numerous political situations in the 1950s and 1960s that could have led to the scenario vividly described in this book actually happening. The author helps you feel the characters' fears and conquests. A great book.
great reader and story Thankyou for the nice evening. . out kids listened and were interested too!
Thought it was a solid story and a very good performance by the narrator. Definitely makes you think about the world we inhabit and how delicate it is.
Loved this book! The story seemed so real and timely that I kept wondering how someone in 1959 could write it without dating itslef. Absolutely a classic! A must read!
This story captivated as well as scared me and made me think about what my family and I would - could - do I this situation. Wow. I binge listened for 8 hours straight. The story starts off reeeeally slow though - it took me a few tries to get into it, but so worth it once I got past the first couple chapters. But thinking back on it now, the slowness does help you feel what life was like before The Day, and the contrast is meaningful.
