I would simply for the reason that it's akin to getting another 7 hours or so of George Carlin's standup. He doesn't simply read the words on the page but brings life to them and it's easy to feel like you're watching him do a set.
I can't think of another book that compares to this one.
His pace, tone, and attitude as he reads the books. It's in between a live show and just a standard narration but as a big George Carlin fan it was great to hear him read these books.
I found myself coming back to his book after every wook interruption or short break to rest my ears. It's easy to listen to in chunks because there is no major over-arching storyline but prolonged listeneing just left me smiling like a fool at my desk.
I really enjoyed this book! Any fan of Carlin's stand up would probably enjoy this audio book!
It's towards the top of my list
Andy Dahl was great as the redshirt that finally sees a pattern emerging...
I've not listened to any of Wil Wheaton's narrations before and to be honest, I only realized he narrated this book when I started to listen. It was a pleasant surprise and seeing Wil's name next to an audio book will increase the likelihood I'd buy it.
I listen to audio books exclusively at work but this could've easily been a weekend listen. It's not overly long and it maintains a good pace throughout.
Wil's narration was great, the idea behind the book was original and a great nod to the sci-fi lovers and the lore of the Redshirt. I particularly enjoyed the opening to the book and I've read some criticism of the end but I enjoyed the codas.
