if you can't at match the quality of the original author's story you shouldn't bother this book unfortunately fails to come anywhere near that benchmark. I will try to finish but it keeps putting me to sleep, possibly it could be sold as an insomnia cure.

narrator irritating and prime put off

Unfortunately I couldn't get past the first few minutes of the first story as the narrator got on my nerves t the extent I have asked for a refund

I don't know how plausible the story is for survival as described but it was a great read and backed up with interesting facts on the red planet and of course right up to the last minute its will he wont he make it? read or listen to it and find out.

I am glad I didn't buy the printed version and be responsible for taking part in wasting valuable ink and paper resources, the audio book would be great for an insomniac, Sorry Frankie you are just not funny

Would you try another book written by Alan K. Baker or narrated by Steven Cree?

I found the story predictable in that is sounded like the sort of thing you would hear on an evening when somebody would churn out the old standard Scary Ghost story which were like this anything but, predictable and plodding. If you want an exciting supernatural read or would like some adrenalin kicked into you veins this is not the way to go.

What will your next listen be?

uncertain

What aspect of Steven Cree’s performance might you have changed?

a better story to work on

What character would you cut from The Lighthouse Keeper?

all of them

Any additional comments?

not worth the trouble

After about an hour or so I gave up, it was pointless and a waste my time, I regret purchasing it in the first place,
