Great Story and Narrated Very Well

I've always enjoyed The Sentinel. The writing is very tight and flows very well. The narrator, Ralph Lister, does a great job telling it! I'll be looking for more stories narrated by him. CON: This particular audiobook cuts out every few minutes. At first I thought it was my computer; however, I rebooted my computer and the audio still cut out. So, I listened to it on my phone and guess what...it cut out as well.
