    Dimension of Miracles is a satirical science fiction novel first published by Dell in 1968. It's about Tom Carmody, a New Yorker who, thanks to a computer error, wins the main prize in the Intergalactic Sweepstakes. Tom claims his prize before the error is discovered and is allowed to keep it. However, since Tom is a human from Earth without galactic status and no space traveling experience, he has no homing instinct that can guide him back to Earth once his odyssey begins - and the galactic lottery organizers cannot transport him home.

    Author Ronda Del Boccio says: "Hilarious! - Could have been written this year"
    "Credo quia absurdum"

    Story

    Most audiobooks are listen once and never bother again. This one is a listen twice right away and consider a third time. It's that good. So far my favorite quote is "No sense in crying over unspilt blood".

    Imagine The Hitchhiker's Guide with deeper vocabulary or MST3K written in the late 1960's and you get a sense of how much fun this book is.

    John Hodgman is an excellent choice for narrator. Unfortunately, the sound editor left some extraneous noises and short repeats that are bothersome, resulting in the 4* performance rating. (it is a team effort)
