A great collection of rich content. Regarding earlier comments about the narrator--I like him because he reads without trying to win an academy award for acting. Perfect for being read to sleep at night. He reminds me of the Radio Reader on PBS, or a hypnotist. A good way to get these ideas into your subconscious mind where they can do some good.
I enjoyed revisiting 2001, hearing about how it came to be written and learning about the partnership between Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick. Dick Hill did a great job narrating, and captured HAL perfectly.
I wish Sandra Burr had chosen to just read the book in her wonderful voice without acting it. Her voices for most characters reminded me of Danny's imaginary friend Tony in The Shining-- gravelly and dead, totally inappropriate. Eventually I had to give up listening. Too bad, it seemed like a good book. Annoyance factor high.
