Publisher's Summary

In the 25th Century mankind fought against the hated telepathic slan race in the fierce slan-wars. The result was the extermination of almost all slans, and the establishment of a world-wide police state. Now in the 30th Century, slan Jommy Cross has escaped extermination and is now living in the world of cruel humans. Jommy was determined to avoid detection, track down other surviving slans and with them, solve the mystery of the slan's strange existence and superiority.

This has to be the worst audio rendition of a book I have ever heard. Easily 25% is wasted pauses and worthless sound effects. Also I did not realize that it was a re-written audioplay. Acting was poor and some dialogue was unintelligable. I was gettig ready for the sequel and should have just re-read the book. This audio is NOT recommended!

I love old sci-fi and I am very forgiving; I can listen to old recordings of arcane bits of literature happily for hours. This work is by far the worst piece of literature that I have ever heard. Please, go look for an audiobook by Robert Heinlein and listen to his work. Today there are 83 titles in the Audible library. Don’t listen to this mess.

How to ruin a sf classic

Would you try another book written by A. E. van Vogt or narrated by Third Ear Radio Theater?

Having read Classic A.E.vanVogt books in the past and this story in particular and thoughly enjoyed it. I find the Third Ears Radio Theatre adaptation of this book a total abomination attempt and is totally rank amateurish if anything a perfect example of how not to adapt a book.

What didn’t you like about Third Ear Radio Theater’s performance?

I appreciate that this was done as a radio play format but there was an over emphasis on a music background giving no real descriptve content which effectively left long periods where there was no real content. Also the sound effects drowned out almost all the dialog at times.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

There were no redeeming qualities to this production.

Any additional comments?

If I could I would ask for my credit/money back. I also urge audible to remove this title from its library to prevent anyone else being disappointed.

Very jumpy radioplay

The radio play had rather long sequences of music so it felt like the story didn't move. Especially the first part was rather static. The second part did improve though.
