Summary

And this one is so unexpected and so real, even the hardened skeptic finds he can't help but believe. This engaging, humorous tale of the beyond won the 2006 Hugo Award for Best Novella.

Entertaining novella.

This is the first book I have read by Connie Willis. She writes in an easy style and the story is interesting and keeps one interested. A debunking journalist's beliefs are questioned when one of his deceased debunking colleagues is 'channeled' through one of the charlatans he is trying to expose. All in all it is a short, fun listen which I would recommend.

My only real criticism is that the debunker-couple are so entrenched in their beliefs and there intent to debunk that when all the indications, after extensive evidence and research, point towards a genuine contact with a spirit, they continue to debunk and even conceal the truth. Makes them a bit stupid in my opinion. But this will not stop me looking for other titles by the author as I think she is very good. The narration was excellent too.

Terrific, but too short

I have just discovered Connie Willis after reading "Not to Mention the Dog". The author tweaks just a few small things about everyday life to make an interesting and sometimes funny semi-fantasy, a sort of "what would happen if...." This book was great fun and kept me interested throughout. I'd advise not wasting a credit on it due to its short length, but wait until there is a sale and buy it. You won't be disappointed.

An engaging story with a humorous plot twist

If you've never read any of Connie Willis' short stories (as opposed to her excellent novels) you owe it to yourself to give "Inside Job" a listen. This story is easily among her best (so far) and the reading by Dennis Boutsikaris is excellent.
