Slaughter House Five (The conspiracy theory edition), as performed by the The Mercury Theatre on the Air.
This performance may well miss much of its potential audience simply because it initially presents itself so convincingly as a just another loony ufologist on a soapbox.
In reality it is an alternate history sci-fi novel.
The alternate reality element has been so carefully woven into an anecdotal narrative of the Pacific campaigns of WWll and its immediate aftermath that someone at Audible has actually filed it under 'History'.
Alarm bells ring, for me, anytime I see a book read by it's author, doubly so if the title includes the letters UFO. With a few notable exceptions, authors are rarely great voice talents, I'll stick my neck out now and say that Jonathan Abel is one of the most notable of those notable exceptions.
There are a lot of things to like about this work.
As the author, voice talent and producer Jonathan Abel has delivered an engagingly idiosyncratic story in an unusual narrative form, performed it masterfully and topped it off with an innovative and entertaining production.
It probably won't be a best seller in Japan.

Interesting story, personality I feel it contains too many non-relevant side tales, making it rambling & hard to follow. As a result it has no real conclusion. There are several snippets that pick the interest, but really end up not relating to the main plot (as per the title).
