Starts with an introduction about Bates. Since Bates is not that well known today, the introduction was appreciated. Written in 1940 it may be a little slow for the under fifty crowd, but it is a well written story with a great message. The movie was a classic and like most movies is not exactly like the book. Both are good. It was a fun and thought provoking listen.

I have always loved the movie original The Day the Earth Stood Still and had wondered what the original story was like, and found Farewell to the Master absolutely delightful.
Sadly there seems to be very few stories from Harry Bates that have survived the test of time. It is wonderful to have this story on audible.com.
The reading by Tom Weiner was perfect for this story. His style on this book reminded me of the 1950s. But I had previously heard him narrate Blackwater, and he sounded a bit different there. Overall a great reading, and he calmly is able to emphasize drama without being too over dramatic.
