Needs Sound Editing!

Great story, Great Actors, but the experience is ruined by very poor audio... the sound effects overwhelm the dialog to the point of making it unbearable to listen to. PLEASE PLEASE check the Levels and re-release.

Great story -- horrible period narration / sound

This is a good story, by a great author, that became a great book. However, the period sound effects are so annoying that it ruins the enjoyment of the story. It has frequent random sounds (thought 'cool' or 'futuristic' at the time) that are jarring in their frequency and volume relative to the speaking.

Skip this version of this audiobook and just read the short story or the book it became.
