What if you could read minds

The premise here is "how would the world be different if you and only could suddenly read minds?" The less than satisfying answer is: you'd see that everyone else is apparently a jerk but you could use it to get a raise and get the girl. Pretty weak compared to the other TZ radio dramas which are typically much better.

Step into... The Twilight Zone

Always an enjoyable listen. Never a disappointment. Twilight Zone has always been a favorite show and now preferred audiobooks of mine.

I love these Twilight Zone Radio dramas

I love audio books. However, after being soaked up in a particularly long and exciting listen it is difficult to transition to another book. I need something shorter to help me wind down and gear up for my next big listen :). The Twilight Zone dramas really hit the spot for me. I've gotten several of them and each are well produced and fun listens. I recommend them highly!

The insecure good-guy is blessed for the day.

Larry here:
Indeed do beware of a gift-horse, they may be hard to live with. An honorable man lives in a closet with no skeletons of his own, but with a loving shove takes a bold step out to embrace his up-coming fair opportunity.
A winning combination, a good man of integrity, with Courage, & timing... 'Da winner!

Enjoyable through and through...

This radio adaptation of "A Penny for Your Thoughts" is among the best of the Twilight Zone Audible offerings. The jump to a radio medium from a TV one is seamlessly done. In this case, the lack of visuals only increases the listener's feeling of the confusion Mr. Hector Poole experiences from his newfound power. Allow me to once again mention the quality of these production values; excellent, as always. For the money, these are among the best Audible purchases around.

has a little of everything

this particular twilight zone episode had good and bad, romance, dreams, luck, the underdog, and a happy ending--a nice treat to listen to on a rough day.

Where do I collect my penny for these thoughts?

I thought that the performance was excellent and I had no difficulties with imagining the characters. I thought the sound effects were realistic and made visualising the action. I thoroughly enjoyed it
