Science Fiction • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1973

Clarke's landmark--and still fascinating--story of a human encounter with an alien spacecraft grips the listener from the beginning. Hayward Morse reads in a cultured American accent, which shifts effortlessly to British, Australian and European accents. His interpretations of the personalities of the explorers help the listener identify with fellow travelers in a unique situation. The well-paced reading develops its own rhythm, never seeming rushed or forced, and always allows the incredible story to shine through. M.A.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 97]
