What happens when you isolate from disease?

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This is a short radio play from 1957. Well worth the time spent.

If you’ve listened to books by X Minus One before, how does this one compare?

This is an excellent example of the productions at X Minus One. One of the best.

Did the narrator do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Each character was played by different actors. Very well done.

Do you think X Minus One needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No this story pretty much has a beginning and an end.

Any additional comments?

This story was about a plague where there was no cure, so people were put on a planet and ignored for generations. Trouble is, they found a cure but had no escape until a reporter stumbles upon them. Very interesting premise.
