REDSHIRTS A Novel With Three Codas

by | Read by Wil Wheaton

Science Fiction • 7.45 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Scalzi’s metafictional science fiction novel gains one more level of self-reflection by using actor Wil Wheaton as its narrator. As a secondary cast member on the TV show “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” Wheaton is perfect to narrate an audiobook about secondary members of a frontier spaceship who realize they’re part of some larger fictional narrative wherein they inevitably die whenever they go on missions with the ship’s leaders. However, beyond that, his narration is not particularly outstanding since he lacks much character range. Though some characters are distinguishable, few sound unique. His nuance and emphasis also need more development. Yet he does grow on the listener and manages an enjoyable listen for the full duration of the production.
