    Story
    (159)

    Bradbury's Mars is a place of hope, dreams, and metaphor - of crystal pillars and fossil seas - where a fine dust settles on the great empty cities of a silently destroyed civilization. It is here the invaders have come to despoil and commercialize, to grow and to learn - first a trickle, then a torrent, rushing from a world with no future toward a promise of tomorrow.

    I read this years ago, but not until I heard it narrated by Scott Brick did I truly appreciate this story. He brought it to life and kept it alive!

    Story
    (1085)

    At first, only a few things are known about the celestial object that astronomers dub Rama. It is huge, weighing more than ten trillion tons. And it is hurtling through the solar system at inconceivable speed. Then a space probe confirms the unthinkable: Rama is no natural object. It is, incredibly, an interstellar spacecraft. Space explorers and planet-bound scientists alike prepare for mankind's first encounter with alien intelligence.

    Peter Tersteeg says: "Excellent story, terrible naration"
    "This is tough...book vs narrator"
    Overall

    Of course, the book receives a five-star rating...how could it not? This has been one of my favorite hard sci-fi books. But OMG...how did this narrator get a job reading??? Most of the time, it sounds like a computer is reading. Bob...went...over...to...the...bridge..... I cannot believe this narrator was allowed to read one of the best sci-fi of all times. But I don't only blame him...there's also the director, producer and whoever else was responsible for letting the narrator get away with reading the way he did. Five stars for the book...negative zero stars for the narrator!
