Questionable Voice Acting
I loved the text. Ellison's narration though... when he is doing the prose portions, he is spot on. Perfect. I got chills on the opening prose section.
But when he does voices he goes off the deep-end. It isn't so much that he can't act. It's that he makes terrible choices for each voice.
For example, one of the characters is introduced as having a *light* texas accent, but Harlan gives him a parody of a texas accent.
And he makes the female astronauts sound like they are twelve-year olds dreaming of becoming ice princesses.
But I have to say that I agree with the previous reviewer: yuo do get used to it.
And the book is excellent. I just wish that someone had been directing Ellison.

What a Universe!
Bova's universe of nanotechnology is just awesome. I first read this book years ago, and still refer to particular sections as amazing examples of both science fiction and imaginative nanotech applications. I'd also highly recommend his other books set in this nanotech universe.
