I enjoyed reading the paperback version of this book so much I decided to get the audiobook. Unfortunately, the author chooses to read most direct quotes in his normal voice, but destroys others with his bad impersonations (his Albert Brooks and Mel Brooks are particularly heavy-handed and distracting.) If you can endure (or fast forward) those bit, the book itself is an excellent and informative history.

a classic futuristic collection

So strange to read, in 2018, about space colonization imagined for the turn of the 21st century. The strongest visual for me, that I remembered from first reading this collection decades ago, is the description of Martian corpses dried up like blackened leaves, kicked up and trampled by the feet of Earth children playing in the ruins. #Audible1

Nick Offerman provides the perfect voice to drawl this classic Twain tale in your ear. #Audible1

An excellently crafted tale that moves effortlessly between points of view and places in time. #Audible1

Until hearing the book, I thought people referred to Heathcliff as shorthand for some sort of troubled "bad boy." I'm suitably disturbed to know now how much darker he really is. #Audible1
