More than a hundred years before, an alien named Ulysses had recruited Enoch as the keeper of Earth's only galactic transfer station. Now, as Enoch studies the progress of Earth and tends the tanks where the aliens appear, the charts he made indicate his world is doomed to destruction. His alien friends can only offer help that seems worse than the dreaded disaster. Then he discovers the horror that lies across the galaxy.
BONUS AUDIO: Way Station includes an exclusive introduction by Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Mike Resnick.

Enjoyable story. Great Narrator. Good story line. a bit slow at times but it still kept you interested
I liked the idea of there being a way station here on earth and the new ideas of how we are just a small backwards “train” station on the road to better places.
The book was well read and I personally like the way the tone of the voice complemented the store being told.
A follow-up book would be great, however I think there would need to be more time taken to develop the back story and the government’s involvement.
Parts of the story especially about the government annoyed me … they were too nice and too trusting. To me it did not sound true.
What a fun book! lot of reviews called this dated and perhaps it was......But who cares! This audiobook was one of those that you cant stop listening to. I loved it!
A great classic with a message still timely today.
Summerer doesn't just read or narrate. He is able to give voice to each character.
I would but would caution them that while it was a classic in its time the ending was unsatisfying.
The title says it all. A Way Station - a portal into the vast universe.
He handled the job well enough. Not spectacularly.
Yes. great concept from the beginning. Author should have had more intrigue with the government. And the alien bunny at the end had no edge, no reality about him.
It's an easy going ,relaxing,space adventure of the mind.
The medalsum government agent just goes to show they can cause galactic problems even for the dead lol
Excellent reader very autistic look forward to further performances and other stories he brings to my ears
Laugh and awe a bit
Just enjoyed it is all :)
I picked up a hard copy of this book in a bag sale at the library over 20 years ago, and it soon became one of my favorites. When I saw it on sale on Audible, I was excited to listen to it again. Hearing this old favorite brought to life by the narrator was very enjoyable. The exploration of the swings of a human's morality when faced with intelligent life from other worlds adds great interest to this novel. Highly recommended.
I would listen to this story again as I am a fan of Simak.
The reader does a great job differentiating the characters and setting a nice pace to the story.
I wish the book was divided in to chapters rather than all the recording in one continuous file.
I have been reading Sci-Fi and Fantasy since I was very young starting with Space Cat in the early 50's. Graduating to Norton, Heinlein.
I do not need 3 words...only 2=
