    Story
    What disappointed you about Ultima Thule?

    I could no longer torture myself and had to end the story half way through. At this point the character has yet to make it out of the office building. Not only do all the characters seem boring but the narrator, Jim Roberts, reads as if a bed time story to small children.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jim Roberts’s performances?

    No.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.

    Like so many others, Ramón Espejo ran from the poverty and hopelessness of the Third World to the promise of a new world, joining a host of like-minded workers and dreamers aboard one of the great starships of the mysterious, repulsive Enye. But the life he found on the far-off planet of São Paulo was no better than the one he had abandoned.

    Great story. Never slows down, never leaves you hanging. Although the ending is not a hanger, I wish they would write a part 2.

    The biggest collection yet of favorite sci-fi stories - 16 full hours!

    Wilbur says: "good selection"
    "What a let down"
    Overall

    I brought the audio book because it has my favorite writers. However it would seem these short stories were a collection of their worst.
