Great selection of stories from the humorous ( The Wub ) to the profound ( Machine Stops ) and in between. Narrators all good. Was hoping to get Volume 2 next but I guess it's not out yet. Give us more! Can't wait!
Don't really care when these stories were written, as long as they are good...and they are. I liked some of the readers better than others but they were all good.
Many reviews balk at the naration of these 7 collections of short science fiction stories.However though they are not the best of best narations I found them more than listenable and enjoyable..also considering that all 7 collections equals some100 hours of sci-fi fun and at a low price I think they are excelent audiobooks for anyones library..hope you enjoy...
74 y o avid reader using either my eyes or ears. I make earrings that I donate to shelters and while I work, I listen to wonderful books
Not every story is a "5" star but most are and the ones that fall short, fall only to "4" stars. Bravo to the collector!!!!
I have been listening to these stories, one at a time, every night at work and felt inspired after every single one. I started this book because thought it was an old time radio show like X minus One or The twilight zone radio dramas, but found out it was instead a collection of short sci-fi stories. The point is that this book was an unexpected surprise.
I found the stories entertaining. I believe most of them were average. A few were great. I did not enjoy the cast performance. I simply am not a fan of most of the speech patterns and intonations. Normally I would say here that I would easily recommend the book for you to listen to. I think it might be worth your time because of the number of stories. I am conflicted about recommending it. I'll say at least, if you do purchase it, I hope you like the voice actors more then I do.
a great way to discover the work of some really talented sci-fi authors. definitely a great entry point work.
Ok for a straight listen. Bad if you want to select an author and listen to those stories in your own order.
Needs to be broken into the separate stories to ease navigation.
Don't bother with this unless you like wooden reading and 2nd rate old stories. There is also no information regarding original publication dates etc, information which is useful with vintage SF since it puts the story into context.
