Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Mark Linn-Baker

Fiction • 6.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1999

Hollywood and Washington never fail to spark satire. Wonder why? A feared TV commentator loses all credibility after his alien abduction. However, the little green men come from a rogue government agency, not outer space, as part of an ongoing, 50-year-old hoax. Complications, needless to say, ensue. The excellence of this tape stems from the playable text and felicitous casting. Possessing just the right wise-guy quality, narrator Mark Linn-Baker always sounds like he's on the verge of laryngitis. What range he has he uses well. What he lacks, he makes up for in focus and in the fun he shares with listeners. The producers use a pinch of musical underscoring--a minor distraction in an otherwise immensely listenable offering.
