**Audio Book Review**
While the rest of the cast did a superb job, if he’s going to keep doing these, someone needs to teach Jon how to sparkle on audio as much as he does when he can be seen. I know what Jon was going for, but it failed, and again that’s the director’s fault. The performance came across as dismissive, bored with his own work. Also, I don’t know WHAT the director/editor was thinking with those chapter headings, they pulled the whole mood into slightly patronizing academia every time.
Unlike “America (The Book)” even the text could not redeem this one. The letter to the aliens after the big Oops! was a potentially good concept but the information was elementary school level, while the language was for adults. I’ve returned this one to audible, too.
