    An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.

    Story
    "Great story about robots taking over!"
    What made the experience of listening to X Minus One the most enjoyable?

    This short radio play was fun and fast paced. A man wants some away time from his wife so gets a robot that looks just like him to fill in while he is gone. Trouble is the robot doesn't want to be turned off and the trouble begins.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of X Minus One?

    When the star finds out what happened to the $10 thousand dollars they were saving for a vacation house. Great twist!


    Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love these old science fiction shows. Some of the best writers had their stories done on these formats and it's great fun to rediscover them.


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

    Definitely! Quick short listen.
