if the upcoming movie is as well paced and thought out as this radio show, then we are in for one hell of a ride!
... Of course, there were some twists that I was completely surprised by, but the writer was savvy enough to draw from all 3 novellas to create a single well-thought-out storyline which did a great deal to explain the nuances of the original WFN concepts and integrate our current levels of technology into them to increase the plausibility factor significantly.
Final notes: Get this, you will not be disappointed!
Colonial Radio Theater did it again!! This is definitely a family favorite. This audiobook is true to the story. My sons love the created mood-great music & super sound effects. Thanks for so much fun.
FORTY SOMETHING THUG FOR HIRE WHO ENJOYS A GOOD BOOK.
THIS IS A SUPERB RADIO DRAMATIZATION OF WILLIAM F. NOLAN'S FABULOUS NOVEL LOGAN'S RUN. THE BOOK IS EASILY ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE SCIENCE FICTION NOVELS AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING AND OR LISTENING TO THE SOURCE MATERIAL. THERE IS AN EXCELLENT READING OF THE NOVEL AVAILABLE AT AUDIBLE.COM. THIS VERSION IS AN EXCELLENT ADAPTATION, AND HAS ALL THE FLAVOR AND EXCITEMENT OF THE SOURCE MATERIAL, AND IS WELL ACTED WITH WONDERFUL SOUND EFFECTS TO BRING EVERYTHING YOU HEAR TO LIFE. GOOD STUFF.
This book is a little dark, particularly its emphasis on death, and the future of mankind. The premise is interesting and the dramatization by the Colonial Radio Players is first rate (as always), I feel that much of the story about Logan and Jessica 6, that you see in the movie is not emphasized. But maybe the novel is much better. This book was just a little to dark for me. I would give in 3 1/2 stars. Maybe if it had been a little longer and the characterization more developed by the authors, it would be better.
Overall, it a quick listen, and you get you money's worth...!!
I was expecting it to be like the book I read years ago. This seems like 4 or 5 books you have to buy to get most of the original book.
