I never read the print version, but would consider it because the narrator was sort of droll. Of course he was perfect for the era in which the book was written, as these days narration is more dramatic, His voice reminds me of the old radio shows.
I would of added more drama to the narration and details to certain findings and technical observations that were just glossed over.
very 'old school'
I enjoyed it and couldn't put it down, it was read in the space of two days. Very original, and I read a lot of Apocalypse books. I loved the descriptions of the new world cities, they were very inventive. I rolled my eyes over the romance which was SO 1930s'! All they needed was wind blowing and melancholy music with the sound of tears dripping and you'd have a movie instead of a book.
I would of made the story five stars if the narrator could of drawn me in more into the story.
I think that younger people might find this book sexist but that was just the way things were back then, sexism was probably not intended it was just the way the majority thought and talked. Masculinity and feminism to sometimes nauseous extremes were regarded as the norm,
This book is very realistic, it starts out a bit slow, which ends up being a good thing as it sets up the realism for the rest of the story. Make sure you have plenty of time, because once you get into this book there will be no sleep until it's over!
The characters grow on you, you feel their pain.
