The first part of the book is the only genuinely interesting bit: a fictional re-telling of science fiction writing and famous sci-fi authors during the golden age of the genre.
But then the long middle part of the book is a tedious melodrama throwing in every daytime soap opera cliche about troubled families.
It gets briefly interesting again when the author behind to imagine humans on a distant planet, but soon it's back to family dramas before a really hokey sentimental ending.
I didn't enjoy the narrator's reading of it either. Something about the pitch and tone of his voice grated me throughout, though I must admit that he mimicked the voices of the older characters really well.

Very slow and inane story. Not at all what I was expecting from Steele after reading the coyote series.

This book took me away.
A fantastic tale, that kept me listening for hours in a row.
Helped by a spot-on performance.
You will not regret getting a copy of Awkright.
Every bit up to Steele's usual high standards. Reminiscent of an updated early Heinlein. Great!
