The voice acting was very hit and miss.
Some of the voice actors were appalling; unnatural.
The stories themselves were hit and miss.
Some were OK, others were cringe inducing.
I might give some of his other work a shot, but with hesitation
as I am pretty turned off by some of the tripe in this particular collection of short stories.
Some of the characters were excrutiatingly over-acted.
Several of the short stories would have been cut entirely.
The hot dog stand, the return to Earth, the rendezvous with the fat girl... tripe.
Some of the sound effects were amusing, but I expect that of all sci-fi radio drama.
I can understand how tuning into the first half of this radio drama
could have freaked some people out back in 1938.
It was really well produced.
The voices are great.
I'm sure I will listen to it again at some point.
It brought clarity to my understanding of the beginnings and developments of life.
I would recommend this book to everyone.
The alternation between voices was a good way of adding notes
and breaking up sections clearly.
Both Dawkins and Ward have pleasant voices.
