    "Like Shatner reading Twilight Zone."

    As cheap as this is, It's only good for passing time.
    If they had picked a better reader, this would have been more interesting.
    It's kind of a Twilight Zone type story.
    But the reader sounds like a caricature of William Shatner. Too...
    many... pauses..... If the ... story had.... been... read by... some... one... else.
    It.... would... have been... bet... ter.. to ... lis EN ... to.
