This story was like putting on a special pair of lenses which showed you the world you currently live in, after humanity implodes on itself.
Through this story you also view yourself differently - how capable and resilient are you when it's important? And when significant pressure is applied what kind of human being would you be?
Curiously, although written in the 50's, Wyndham has told a story which really hasn't aged, in fact it seems potently relevant for recent times. Our collective ingenuity has a seedy underbelly which could adversely affect our very existence if not managed correctly.
Wyndham grabbed me from the get-go and I was in this story, alongside Bill, all the way.
What a fabulous voice! I can't imagine Bill sounding any other way. I was 100% satisfied with his intonation/pace/sound. Loved listening to him.
Who will survive.. and how???
This story has a place in my personal top 5!
It's such a creative story! The characters were so easy to attach to and the reader has such talent for telling the story, not just reading.
It's such a creative story. I can't compare it to anything because I've never read/listened to another story quite like it.
I had not listened to Fenella before but her voice is so fantastic for audio books that I will definately be looking out for more of her books.
This is a hard one. I'm tossing up between Ursula and Izzy. Izzy would be highly entertaining, but Ursula would the character I would be most interested in chatting to.
Thank you to the author for such an entertaining story.
