Book pak The Reader's Chair 1996
CS ISBN 0962401099 $ Seven cassettes
A secret, commercial, genetic-engineering project has produced a new species of human (quadies) who have two additional arms instead of legs, making them ideally suited to work in free fall. Michael Hanson's and Carol Cowan's narrative talents mesh nicely, creating distinctive voices for the Nebula Award-winning novel's characters through pacing, tone of voice and emotional shading. Conversation flows naturally--passages of dialogue alternate, and quote attributions are removed. Both remain true to the characters throughout, capturing the varying aspects of young, seasoned and devious personalities. This production shows dual narrators can enrich the listening experience.
