Publisher's Summary

Rob, a professional debunker, is watching yet another performance by a supposed psychic. But as she calls forth the spirit entity known as Isus, another voice suddenly interrupts. And this one is so unexpected and so real, even the hardened skeptic finds he can't help but believe.

This engaging, humorous tale of the beyond won a Hugo Award for Best Novella.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoyed the story. As a skeptic who desperately wants to be believe in the spirit world is spoke to all my hopes and fears. Its really well written, fast paced, great character development. Its great way to spend 2 hours.

    "Inside Job"

    The narrator was good but the story was neither mysterious nor interesting. At the end, I just wondered why it had been written. In my view it didn't seem to have much purpose.

    Legal Thrillers, crime, fiction. humor and a bit of management sprinkled with some self improvement. All through Audible.

    "Nothing Special"

    It is nothing special. It did not bore me. I smiled about 15 times, laughed aloud 3 times and frowned and grimaced the rest of the time while driving from Durban to Johannesburg while listening to this a part of the way.

    Story
    "Killed by its own internal contradictions"

    The hero debunks channeling with channeling, in the name of skeptical rationality. It is or it ain't. Connie Willis wants it both ways, and she dumps her ending, as if she pushed her novel out a window. Way stupid, for a smart writer. Narrator good.

    "missed the ending?"

    I enjoyed this book a lot and was hooked from the first words. When I got to the end of the "first half" I was thinking I missed downloading the second half of the book. I was waiting for an ending, maybe I missed it? I would have rated this 5 star except I felt I needed a conclusion of some sort.
