Summary

A horrifying masterpiece of science fiction.

The Sound of His Horn is a classic novel of the uncanny. Alan Querdilion becomes a prisoner of war during World War II and then awakes, only to find himself in an alternative future in which the Nazis have won the war. Against a sylvan backdrop, the legend of the wild huntsman is revived and genetic experiments have created strange hybrids. Humans are hunted for game, haunted by the sound of the huntsman's horn.

Sound of HIs Horn

This was a rather short novel in which for no reason a WWII prisoner of war finds himself transported to the future where genetically engineered humans are used to hunt people. for sport. While I enjoyed this, it seemed over too quickly. I can see how it has been very influential on other works. Worth listening to and very imaginative for its day. The narrator was okay but a little bit stilted.
