Storytelling by a master!
What made the experience of listening to Dimension X the most enjoyable?
The story was great. The acting was fine. I enjoy listening to these old 50's radio shows. Intelligent and thought provoking dramas.
What other book might you compare Dimension X to and why?
There was a Star Trek Next Generations story that was similar to this. Both were about lonely people who build a family or companion of robots to keep them alive, that they eventually grow old and leave them on their own. What are the moral dilemnas in a case like this? It certainly makes you think.
What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
This is more than a narrator, this is a full blown theatrical play with several actors that truly bring this story to life.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I was especially moved when the woman told the astronaut she felt "a new feeling, of longing" that she hadn't been programmed for. Her creator never wanted her to feel sadness or loneliness because it was so painful for him. I feel that she may have achieved sentience and may be a true new life form.
Any additional comments?
Great story by Ray Bradbury from his Martian Chronicles.
