IN OTHER WORLDS SF and the Human Imagination

by | Read by Susan Denaker

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Author Margaret Atwood's collection of essays and lectures on science fiction includes her previously unpublished Ellman lectures, which are narrated by the author herself in this audiobook. Her delivery of these pieces reminds one exactly of what they were—lectures. Atwood's voice lacks the range and inflection that usually make listening to an audiobook enjoyable. This weakness is remedied when narrator Susan Denaker takes over after the first three chapters. Denaker's narration invites one to consider Atwood's arguments about what the science fiction genre entails and the subgenres she believes are part of it. The final part of the book contains five very short sci-fi stories by Atwood. Denaker's narration of these stories brings out Atwood's humor and enthusiasm.
