Not the full story
Overall very enjoyable until the end where you are greeted with those awful words, "to be continued" interesting story, good cast performance and interesting characters. No resolution leaves you hanging for the next part. I also found the music a bit intrusive at times. But it did its job, it has me waiting for the next instalment.

Not perfect but loved it.
The acting is ropey and some of the dialogue is strange which makes me think it was written by someone whose native tongue isn't English and the clairvoyant was hard to understand. ( your see what I mean ) but saying all that.... I LOVED IT!!!...story moves on at a good pace so can't understand other reviews that said its slow... good story, lots going on... can't wait for part 2.....

Nearly but not quite
Where does Monster 1983 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It's not really an audio book but a radio play. The production values are quite high,
What about the narrators’s performance did you like?
There isn't a narrator - there is a cast !
Any additional comments?
I liked the characters, the setting and the way the story developed. But .......
I was very disappointed to find this is an episode and not the full story. It should be made clear this is part one and not the complete story.
Also the ending of 'part one' is very ambiguous. I am still not sure what the conclusion actually is. I suppose the idea behind this is supposed to leave a cliffhanger for part 2, but it was just confusing.
Since that it wasn't made clear this was not the whole enchilada, after wading through the 7 or so hour running time, not coming to a reasonable ending was frustrating.
I'd like to give two and a half stars for the story, as it seems I only got half the story. However, the half I did get I rather enjoyed.

I really enjoyed this, I loved the retro feel to this story it's like an authentic thriller from the 80s which is right up my street!
Very highly recommended, its the best thing i've listened to this year!
Looking forward to part 2....

Loved it, Can't wait for the next one.
I really enjoyed the way it was performed, there's not enough full cast story's out there, especially over 3 hours long, can't wait for the next installment.
