Good story, but a disappointing purchase

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Fans of synth music.

Has The Last Question turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, not at all.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jim Gallant’s performances?

I wouldn't rule anything out based strictly on his participation.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Last Question?

None of the scenes, just the music.

Any additional comments?

The background music didn't bother me so much, but I thought I was buying an hour-long story. The story actually ended around the thirty-minute mark and was then followed by half an hour more of just music. The music wasn't even something I'd want to listen to on its own.

I prefer to be read to

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would change the performance from one of live theater with multiple actors and music to the format that Audible has always been so great for: Getting a truly talented voice actor to read the story using different intontation, accents, etc for character dialogue. I don't come to Audible for radio dramas. I come to hear a great story read to me.

Any additional comments?

This is one my favourite short stories of all time. The explanation of entropy as it relates to the universe and our own beginnings has always made this a great read.
