    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend this for listening while travelling - say on a long road trip. But not as 'bedtime reading', no.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Doomsday Machine?

    The book makes a rather unnatural transiton to audio. But nonetheless, the style is simple and there are plenty of color details. It's definitely not for the casual reader, but for those interested in the topic - is nuclear energy the soltuion tothe world's energy crisis? Is it as safe as we're continually told? it's a friendly voice, giving thoughtful and careful insights.


    Did David Rapkin do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    We,, there are no 'characters', but he's certainly got a very suitable voice for the main 'techno-future' theme. I felt occasionally that he tended to carry on where a pause would have been more true to the sense of the text.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Certanly not - it's a book to listen to in smallpieces. Fortunately, the structure (seven 'myths') lends itself to that.


    Any additional comments?

    Difficult project, but good effort.
