Wow! This was quite a listen! Sex positions and advice were incredible and insightful but a lot of the rest of the book is about ancient practices some of which which seem very strange today - even a bit absurd - like how to get your wife..or one of them..to help you seduce another woman!
I must say, though, that ancient time certainly did not have the puritanical attitude and guilt about sex many have today. They LOVED it and went after it full bore! Kind of refreshing. I agree with another reviewer that the narrator was just right for this kind of book.
Excellent presentation of a great sci-fi story by Harry Harrison, one of the true masters of the genre. Very suspenseful...found myself looking for excuses to take long drives so I could listen to more!
I give an A to the story and an A to the reader but just a B to the audio. It was clear enough but obviously done during pre-digital days since there was some "print-through," a slight echo effect that books done ten years or more ago have.
However...I soon stopped noticing that and was caught up in the book. So..if less than perfect audio bothers you, I suggest you listen to the sample first. If you don't mind an older recording...it's a wonderful story and well read.
Just got a gift certificate and this little blurb convinced me to start using it.
