What made the experience of listening to Terra the most enjoyable?
Mitch Benn's reading brought even more warmth and humour to the story than the words on the printed page.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Terra?
Haha, no spoilers, can't tell you. But some of the nods to Douglas Adams' writing raised a smile.
Which character – as performed by Mitch Benn – was your favourite?
The more obvious 'character' parts, precocious Fthfth, accident-prone Pktk and officious Vstj, add colour to the tale, but the warmth between Terra and Lbbp was beautifully portrayed and, for me, where the performance stood out as more than just a 'reading'.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I had to break my listening into about three sessions, but each time I was impatient to come back to it.
Any additional comments?
This is a heartwarming story in a similar vein to E. T. and would be a great introduction to sci-fi for a younger audience. Existing fans of the genre and geeks in general will enjoy that the 'sci' in this sci-fi hasn't been sidestepped or excessively dumbed-down.
Highly, highly recommended.

The audiobook of Terra isn't available from Audible.US, so it took a small effort to be able to buy it as an American.
I just had to get a passport. Then book a flight to the UK. I flew into Heathrow because there were no direct flights to Manston from Atlanta. Took one of Southeastern's lovely trains to Tunbridge-Wells, where I met with a lovely estate agent and rented a flat. I then just had to open a bank account. Armed with my new card with a UK billing address, I was able to readily purchase both of Mitch's excellent audiobooks.
Would do it again without hesitation.
