The Food of the Gods by H. G. Wells

food_of_the_gods_155x238From AudioFile Magazine:
H.G. Wells’s tale of the end of the world as we know it is an entertaining fable, in which lawyers and politicians battle giant animals and giant humans before an inevitable military confrontation. Robert Whitfield gives a merry air to the adventure, creating just the right attitudes for each of the many characters and shifting tone deftly with the writing. Depending on the circumstances, he conveys a sense of wonder or a nonchalance that makes giant rats seem perfectly ordinary. First published in 1904, this satirical novel holds up well today, and the reading makes listening something to anticipate. J.A.S. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. © AudioFile 2000

About Simon

Simon is an actor who found his way into audiobook narrating as a side-gig and seems to have made a success of it. With some training as an actor as a child (just a couple of hours a week, but it stuck) and 15 years working inside the BBC (ending up as one of the presenters/newsreaders on BBC Radio 4 in London) he found the ideal combination for an audiobook narrator. Found his way to California two decades ago and never left.
