I'd recommend this for listening while travelling - say on a long road trip. But not as 'bedtime reading', no.
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.
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.
Certanly not - it's a book to listen to in smallpieces. Fortunately, the structure (seven 'myths') lends itself to that.
Difficult project, but good effort.
