It's clear why "Rendezvous With Rama" reeived so many awards and is regarded as a classic. Fantastic and unique story line! However, the narration on this version is delivered in such a monotone that the listener becomes easily disengaged. It actually sounds robotic. Would love to hear it narrated by a human.

Story is great and well written. The narrator turns it into a travesty. Every character is read with the same monotone voice with no inflection and one of the worst cadences I've ever listened to outside of a college calculus class. It sounds a little better if you speed it up to 1.25x, but it's still horrible. Would even be willing to re-purchase this with a better narrator - Seriously, he's that bad.

This is one of my favourite books and it tells a mind blowing story but unfortunately the reader is very bland and for me this is a very important part of an audiobook!

After reading all the great reviews and see all the awards it got. I was really looking forward to listening to this audio book. However after aprox 5 hours, I just had to stop.
It was boring. This confused me. I've since come to the conclusion, that the narrator's dull tone, is what made me switch off. Shame really as like I said, I was really looking forward to listening
