Brian Wilson Aldiss is one of the most important voices in science-fiction writing today. He wrote his first novel while working as a bookseller in Oxford. Shortly afterwards, he wrote his first work of science fiction and soon gained international recognition. Adored for his innovative literary techniques, evocative plots, and irresistible characters, he became a Grand Master of Science Fiction in 1999. Brian Aldiss recently celebrated his 80th birthday and is still writing, to ardent applause.

One of the best SciFi but horrible reader
Here we have one of the best science fiction stories of all time - and an absolutely horrible narrator. There are many sources to know what the book is about, so I'm just talking about the narrator.
The narrator uses pauses completely senselessly. It is also not clear why they are sometimes so long. The chosen emphasis and dialect together make it unbearably difficult for the listener to follow the story. Sometimes I had the feeling of listening to a not very advanced artificial intelligence. I recommend avoiding David Thorpe as a narrator.
