Science Fiction • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1985

There’s nothing so joyous in science fiction as a Golden Age chestnut, and MINDSWAP delivers with gusto. Narrator Tom Weiner shares that gusto as he portrays alien dialects, futuristic slang, and interplanetary adventure. Weiner evokes the B-movie aesthetic so strongly that one expects to hear cheesy beeps, radar pings, and theremin music. Satire is the name of the game, and satire is always best served straight up. Recognizing this, Weiner modulates his tone to one of earnest sincerity. Winking sarcasm would destroy the tone, so even when a Martian speaks with the broadest Cockney accent in history, Weiner's delivery is perfectly apropos. Listening to this audiobook is just plain fun. A.Z.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2010]
