Great production, too expensive 28 avril 2011
Par Kat Hooper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Brilliance Audio has recently put Philip K. Dick's short story The Adjustment Team on audio and they sent me a copy. This is the story that the movie The Adjustment Bureau was based on (and the name of the audiobook is The Adjustment Bureau). The story is 57 minutes of tension and psychological terror as Ed Fletcher gets to work late and accidentally sees The Adjustment Team "adjusting" his office building and its occupants. Now, unadjusted Ed notices all the differences in his environment but his adjusted colleagues think everything is normal. Is Ed crazy?

Phil Gigante does an excellent job reading this story -- the drama and terror really comes across well. I enjoyed "The Adjustment Team," I'm glad I've finally read the story that the popular movie was based on, and I'm particularly happy to be able to listen to short stories on audio. However... The audiobook is less than an hour long and it costs (at this writing) $11. As much as I enjoyed it, I just can't recommend spending that much money for so little story, especially when the Kindle version costs only 99¢.

The Blue Wrench 30 avril 2011
Par Karen Joan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Moviemakers love Philip K. Dick. It's a fact. Blade Runner, Total Recall, Minority Report, Imposter, are all adaptations of his work. And now Hollywood has parlayed another one of his stories, Adjustment Team, into a major motion picture starring Matt Damon. The movie's title has been changed to THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU.

Originally published in 1954, Adjustment Team is a short story depicting a man who, to borrow from Vonnegut, becomes unstuck in time. And being out of his proper temporal place, he see things in a very different way. For one thing, solid objects crumble at his touch. To his horror, this includes people. At some point, he runs into a group of grey men who are changing things, including his co-workers. He eventually makes it back to his own time. In the end, he learns exactly what the men were doing and why and he lives happily ever after.

As a story, Adjustment Team is classic 1950's sci-fi. I can easily imagine it as a 25-minute episode of the Twilight Zone. In fact, it reminded me of a similar story I had seen on the New Twilight Zone,called A Matter of Minutes, wherein a couple becomes unstuck in time and witnesses blue men with blue tools doing similar things to the world. It seems that episode was based on the 1941 story, Yesterday Was Monday, by Theodore Sturgeon. But it is also reminiscent of Stephen King's The Langoliers. Even so, I don't really have a problem with Adjustment Team. It does what Philip Kindred Dick intended for it to do.

I also have no problem with the unabridged audio version of THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU from Brilliance Audio. Paul Gigante brings the book to life nicely. His pleasant voice and energy make the 58-minute product very easy to listen to.

Overall, THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU is a solid product. I recommend it.

An exciting glimpse behind the curtain (very different from the movie) 26 avril 2011
Par James Korsmo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
This is a great story, and the recording is well done. In this one-hour short story, Philip Dick builds a great little tale investigating the very fabric of reality. Ed and his wife Ruth are normal, everyday people with normal, everyday jobs. But one morning, Ed shows up late to work. And it turns out to be the day that his work segment is being "adjusted." So he stumbles unaware into a piece of reality that is deactivated for tweaking. He manages to escape, but has to try cope with this glimpse behind the curtain, as he comes to realize that reality is being manipulated by someone from the outside, and he even comes to learn why, when he meets the man "behind the curtain." Dick's story is a fun and also meaningful exploration of themes of providence, determinism, and fate, and I look forward to discussing it with others. This short story is very evocative of Farenheit 451 in the way it takes a look at reality that is at once fantastic and plausible, and he gives the reader or listener great food for thought. And the story is just plain fun. It is a riveting hour of listening, well narrated by Phil Gigante. I highly recommend it. Enjoy!

Update: I've now seen the movie, which I enjoyed, but it causes me to want to add to my review that the short story is very different in content, in tone, in plot, etc. They do explore some of the same themes, at least to some extent, in that there is an "adjustment bureau" and the main character is struggling to discern how and if he can be freed from the manipulation. But the working out of the plot, in fact the very plot itself, is pretty drastically different. I especially mention this since the cover of the recording uses a publicity shot from the movie. This doesn't detract at all from what I thought was a spectacular short story, it's more of a public service announcement, in that I enjoyed them both, just differently.

Things Are Not What They Seem 31 mars 2011
Par A. Silverstone - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Philip K. Dick's short story, The Adjustment Team, is brought to vivid life by Phil Gigante. His skillful handling of the various characters creates the complex Dickian world where nothing seems to go right, and when it goes wrong, that's when things really get weird. Ed Fletcher lives the humdrum life of a real estate agent. Unfortunately for him, his lackadaisical Summoner is a minute late and instead of a ride to work, Fletcher gets a visit from an insurance salesman. Rather than being early to his job in sector T137, he arrives in the middle of the adjustment process, when the sector has been de-energized, and people and things fall to dust at his touch. The Adjustment Team try to retrieve him, but Fletcher escapes, only to be captured later. Dick, true to form, explores the themes of what is real, what is madness, and what are the men behind the curtain doing to our world. Alas, being a short story, there is a bit of Deus ex Machina explanation at the end. Gigante's engaging reading more than makes up for the usual Dickian non sequiturs.

Short but Interesting 13 avril 2011
Par Vivian Deliz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Since I have not seen the film (yet), I will not compare to it. I liked the reading of this short (very short) story. I could visualize the characters and surroundings and could feel how terrified the main character (Ed Fletcher) was.

Ed is a real estate agent that goes to work late. Because of his delayed arrival, his world is turned upside down. Everything is different, everything is gray ... but is it?

I loved the ending (not giving it away) and really think this is a short story everyone should read (listen) to.

Phil Gigante does a very good job of reading the story. He kept my attention during the entire hour (58 minutes) of the reading. The only part that I did not like was when he impersonated Ed's wife. The falsetto voice was not very credible.

I recommend this story as it is not too scary for the younger audience and will keep adults interested.
