Watchbird


Read by Phil Chenevert

(4.2 stars; 118 reviews)

3 Robert Sheckley short stories that demonstrate the breadth of his fantastic imagination. In Watchbird, the question "can machines solve human problems?" is answered with a resounding YES! But there may be a few unforeseen glitches. Just a few. Warrior Race drops us into an alien race of warriors who fight in a way you will never be able to imagine until you listen. And Beside Still Waters is a gentle story that shows us a man who really wants to get away from it all ... sitting on a rock in the asteroid belt with only a robot for a friend. No girls allowed! A poignant and unsettling story to say the least. (1 hr 30 min)

Someone may have missed the point that this amusing little fable is a metaphor for the cure can be worse than the disease, and a reminder that technology is blind. Fine reading, as usual, by Phil Chenevert.

The Narrator's ignorance says it all. And it's all downhill after that. This is No BBC programme!
