Audible Editor Reviews

Anyone with a fleeting curiosity regarding astrobiology or those looking for an entry-level overview of this fascinating field will be treated to narrator James Adams’ humble and pitch-perfect narration, which evokes the reassuring tone of famed British naturalist David Attenborough, in this audiobook of Lewis Dartnell’s accomplished yet refreshingly simple survey of life in the universe, which not only spans the four billion years of Earth’s history, but ventures further out into the galaxy in search of potentially habitable environments and other mysteries that lurk in the awe-inspiring vastness of space.
