It's not uncommon for me to grit and white-knuckle my way through an audio book's questionable mode of narration for the sake of a good story. Unfiction was pleasantly absent of such a compromise. Author Gene Doucette writes with sharp wit and the keen observation of a true student of the human experience. With nostalgic nods to all our favorite old stories Doucette playfully spins a yarn that is contemporary and new yet warmly familiar.
Narrator Brad Wills captures Doucette's voice with impeccable timing and delivery. Clear and articulate, Wills delivers the story at a pace that matches the tone and feeling of the story: quick and abrupt when the action is hot, steady and deliberate when delivering the more introspective moments of the piece.
It's unfortunate that Wills is not the narrator of Doucette's The Spaceship Next Door as it is next on my list of must listen audio books, as I have enjoyed both the story and its narration immensely.
Listen close and look for the clues as Wills delivers the story of Oliver Naughton's constantly shifting reality in Gene Doucette's Unfiction. You won't be disappointed!

Rod Serling (The Twilight Zone) would be proud of the masterful story telling and performance of this unique and highly entertaining book that drags the characters and the reader through myriad clichés and tropes of sci-fi, fantasy, adventure, writer geeks, intrigue, chicanery and mixed mayhem and mystery mingled with flying alien bugs, dragons, magicians, sexual innuendo....all captivatingly managed with lighthearted, self-abasing humor, and hardly ANY run-on sentences!
