Publisher's Summary

Philip K. Dick's classic paranoid story, "The Adjustment Team", which asks the question: Do we control our destiny, or do unseen forces manipulate us? Ed Fletcher is a real estate agent with a normal life, until one day he leaves the house for work a few minutes later than he should have. He arrives at a terrifying, grey, ash world. Ed rushes home and tells his wife, Ruth, who goes back to the office with him. When they return, everything is normal. But he soon realizes people and objects have subtly changed. Panic-stricken, he runs to a public phone to warn the police, only to have the phone booth ascend heavenward with Fletcher inside. The Adjustment Bureau, the 2011 Universal Pictures movie based on this classic Dick story, starred Matt Damon and Emily Blunt.

I got excited as the story begin to unravel it had my full attention

Any additional comments?

I really had never herd of this story until I was given the audio book in exchange for a honest review. I must say this short story was a pleasure. Well developed and plotted out. But for me the story was made by the narrator Al Kessel. His telling of the story was great I will be keeping this story to listen again. Hos voice was not monotone drumming along to get through it he really gave depth to the story.
