Publisher's Summary

This is the short 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 Team is the basis for the feature film The Adjustment Bureau, starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt.

Any one but a Woman

Would you be willing to try another one of Phil Gigante’s performances?

No. Unfortunately, all of the women's voices were so unbeleiveable that it took me out of the story and left me wishing i could fastforward so I didnt have to hear the shrillness.

Any additional comments?

The story was interesting. I would not listen to this version. The shrillness of the women's voices made listening unbearable.
