Not as good as first one but still worth a listen

The stories were not as memorable to me as the first anthology. However the narration was stellar.

Another good listen

Would you consider the audio edition of The Truth Is out There to be better than the print version?

Never read the print addition but the audio is good.

What does Bronson Pinchot and Hillary Huber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Brings voice to it and makes it easy to picture them in your head.

Any additional comments?

I hope book 3 is as good.

Fun as always

I enjoyed the stories and references to some details from episodes. I didn't really like the story with Mulder and Scully married, but was actually more offended by the portrayal of Dana's mother than the actual marriage piece.

ALMOST as good as Volume 1. A treat for fans...

After hungrily listening to every minute of Volume 1, Volume 2 had some high expectations to meet, and in general, I really, really enjoyed it. Most of the stories were true to the series and enjoyable. A few were a bit ridiculous, and one was so out of character that I forgot it was supposed to be an X Files story. The author of "We Should Listen to Some Shostakovich" must have never taken the time to watch any of the episodes with Scully's mother, because she was written as a haughty, snobbish socialite. Mulder and Scully married and expecting a child was enough of a stretch in this story, but the characterization of Margaret Scully was so OFF that listening to the story was almost unpleasant.

Once again, we had the mis-pronunciation of Lone Gunmen Melvin Frohike's last name as "fro-hike" instead of "fro-hickey," which again annoyed me to the point of wanting to contact Blackstone Audio's production team to set them straight.

Otherwise, Bronson Pinchot's Mulder is very entertaining, and Huber's narration is passable to sometimes enjoyable.

I would recommend this volume to fans, but with the few caveats mentioned above. I hope there will be a volume 3!

It has some continuity errors but most are minor. Not as good as the first book but still a fun novel and the performance is excellent.
