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.
