I am brutally honest. Popular, love everything they read, reviewers are scared to go neg. and risk their ranking. It's your money!!!
It takes me back to hear the intro to these dramas. this one is cliche and just average.
This is only the third audiobook from Audible.com, but in comparison to others, I found it to be outstanding. It was clear, just the right length of time, and enjoyable.
First, I downloaded it because JOHN SCHNEIDER was the actor. Second, it was a Twilight Zone story, and I have watched all the episodes on TV several times over the years. This story, although dated by our 21st Century standards, was more of psychological study of socialization of man confined in a place without any sensory input. The first issue would have been how does man cope alone in space? That problem was a big one in the 1960s, but since that time, NASA and military have always incorporated teams in any space project involving time away from earth.
Stacy narrates the story and pulls it back together in the end, just as Rod Serling did in the TV shows. His style is professional and his voice is perfect. JOHN SCHNEIDER portrayed a man scared to be alone, trying his best to search for companionship, and conveyed the meaning of "no man is an island." John has had an outstanding career as actor, singer, director, producer, and continually surprises me with his versatile style, eloquence, and resonant voice. He sang a few little ditties, but I wished he could have really belted out some songs in his own animated and unwavering style.
I had seen this episode before on TV and knew exactly what was going to happen. However, it is still well-written for its time and although the science part of the experiment has been well-researched over several decades, scientists have found that man does need companionship and sensory deprivation can negatively impact anyone's psyche. One of the quotes in the beginning of the Stacy Keach narration should have been clearly stated as Jean Paul Sartre, but he was uncredited. That problem goes to the writing, not to the performances which were very well portrayed.
I would buy, rent, or download any media having to do with JOHN SCHNEIDER. This was a wonderful production of Twilight Zone series, and I have downloaded all the radio shows with John. I'm happy that the producers have made this series come alive on radio. The manner of acting made the listener "see" all the action and be a part of the description of all the details as the officer walked to the town, went in and out of business shops, and finally, feeling desperate as the officer contemplated his own demise. Thank you for giving these radio shows to the fans.
