    In a New York City groaning under the burden of 35 million inhabitants, detective Andy Rusch is engaged in a desperate and lonely hunt for a killer everyone has forgotten. For even in a world such as this, a policeman can find himself utterly alone.

    What disappointed you about Make Room! Make Room!?

    Harrison has written several engaging and funny SciFi novels. Unfortunately, this is not one of them. It's pretty dated by now; it's pretty plainly social commentary / political propaganda in the cause of birth control. I don't disagree with the message, but it doesn't make entertaining reading. More of an historical curiosity, as this is no longer a controversial issue.


    What could Harry Harrison have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I can't fault him for writing this, several decades ago. I am mystified why Audible or anyone else would want to record it so many years later.


    What three words best describe Eric Michael Summerer’s voice?

    Narration was fine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None I can think of.


    Any additional comments?

    I guess I need to look more closely at the synopsis and comments, before buying a book, even from an author I thought I was familiar with.
