I started listening to an audiobook of a different novel called The Three Body Problem, by Cixin Liu, but I was feeling a little bit depressed and not in the right headspace for something so serious, so I abandoned it for now and listened to this instead. I’m glad I did, as this was a lot of fun – just what I needed to cheer me up! It’s an audible production with a cast and sound effects etc, so like a radio play and would appeal to fans of light-hearted British sci-fi (like me!). It’s like the love child of Dr Who and The X-Files, with a bit of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Red Dwarf thrown in (you get the picture). It follows friends Cassie and Amanda who host a paranormal investigation website and get mixed up with real bad creatures from a parallel dimension and British and American special agents in a rural English village. It had laugh out loud moments as well as a rolicking plot and I really enjoyed listening to it.
