    "** Interesting short sci~fi story **"
    Where does Rescue Party rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Good short story, excellent narration, well worth a listen for short journeys


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The alien species with the collective consciousness, how cool and calm they were when the rescue party was trapped.


    What does Nick Boulton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Excellent narration as always by Nicholas Boulton. There is another version of this story read by another narrator, but no where near as good as Nicholas Boulton's delivery and the production of this version is vastly superior


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

    Yes, it was short enough to be enjoyed in one sitting


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoyed Arthur C Clarke's sci~fi novels and want to listen to a well performed audio book, get this.
