I truly welcome these recordings. Though, I have to admit, Auster's LEVIATHON is the real gem. But, all of his early books are deeply revealing. Starting with these three novellas. If you read all his early works in order, there is this umbrella...well, it...uh...it evolves from book to book. You'll see. This is great literature.
Seriously, you might not like this book. You might not "get it". But, if you do, you will realize that this is a remarkable story, filled with mind-expanding themes, cutting edge science, and much, much more. It is completely original science fiction...unconventional...not part of any series...unlike anything. Very worthy of it's author. What's more, it's intelligent...literate...and it stays with you for a very long time after you're done. I highly, highly recommend it! It's well performed, too. But, you know...if you want space opera (and sometimes I do, too)...this ain't that. At all....
The Smith and Moore aren't really "dramatized"...more like read with sound-effects. They're interesting, Smith more than Moore. The others are original radio plays that are much less compelling. I'm not sorry I bought it...but, it could have been better.
