Better narator and recording than other versions of this book.
Learned new stuff about black holes and time travelling.
A lot of times I found myself rewinding back so I can understnd the concepts, so its not an esy book if you want to understand it, even naively explained.

Or not stuff, after hearing this you might be in doubt about everything - or nothing
Like most people, I had heard of this book - it is quite famous after all. But despite a layman's interest in the subject I somehow always assumed it would be way over my head. Seeing the good reviews on Audible I decided to pick it up - great decision! It is easily accessible and in fact, since Hawking has been such a prominent figure in physics in the last decades, much of what he talks about I was already familiar with from other popular science books on the subject. He makes the subject feel easy to understand (which I'm sure is a delusion on my part) and very interesting.
I particularly want to mention the performance by John Sackville, who has such a wonderfully calm and rich voice. He makes this a real pleasure to listen to.

If you're interested in all things space and time then you'll love this! Admittedly I'd hope Stephen Hawking would read it himself but John Sackville does a great job.

Excellent book! A bit hard to listen as audio book, I had to rewind certain parts to listen to. But otherwise, it's great. Reader has a soothing, calm voice, does excellent job.
Narrator's voice is too monotoned, makes it hard to concentrate at time.
Otherwise a very good read.
