very interesting but poor narrator
Excellent and creative story. Decent narration.
FIrst a disclaimer: I am a fan of hard science fiction and of Charles Sheffield in particular. Although there are works of his that I have liked more than Between the Strokes of Night, it is an excellent stand-alone story. Sheffield creates an entirely internally consistent universe and I appreciate that he does not feeling an obligation to engage in long expository to explain every last element. The characters are rich. Melissa Edris's narration does not do the novel the justice it deserves but neither does it completely detract from it. It annoyed me that she did not know how to pronounce some fairly mainstream words which were not neologisms of Sheffield's. Nonetheless, I enjoyed it very much and am delighted that Audible has added several of Sheffield titles that they had not offered before.
