Old salts will recognize this as a "sea story" from astronaut Buzz Aldrin, himself a mariner as famous as Christopher Columbus. Fiction-lovers will marvel at Aldrin's ability to tell a great sci-fi tale. (And they will despair that it portrays no carnal activity.) Scott Brick's voice is clear and distinct; his "yuppoid" tone shows an ability to add color and vitality to text. However, he does little with his expression to help the reader overcome the confusion created by having Scott, Nick, and Thalia intermittently narrating their own stories within the novel structure. Why not at least a little falsetto for Thalia? J.A.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
