Fantastic story, worth getting into...

Any additional comments?

The story is a classic, but the narration takes some getting into. The voice acting for the characters is great throughout, but the narration in the early scenes feels a little rushed and, at times, a little clunky. It gets better as you go through the book, and there are some points in which Tim Robbins really captures the frustration and drama of the world in which the protagonist lives. By halfway, the narrating style had me on the edge of my seat, so well worth persevering with if you find it poor at the start. As i say, the story itself is great. A really fantastic tale and a great overall audiobook.

Glimpse of the future?

Really thought provoking book. Took a while to get into and finished all too soon. Can't believe it was written in the 50's - must have had a crystal ball.

Superb

I loved every single word and enjoyed every second listening to this book. This will be one of the very few books I will listen to again.

grasping till the end

The start was a bit difficult to digest but then I've grown into it and now I simply love it. There are some passages which have a clear resonance with our modern world.

Great thought provoking story

Excellent narration and well worth a listen. A brilliant story and one we hope will not be our reality.
