The doomed voyage of the UAE Centaurus is just the beginning of Signal, a novel of space exploration that feels like a cross between Alien, The Thing, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It’s a fun story in which the survivors of the crash find themselves splitting into factions while they struggle to survive and find out exactly what’s behind the message that led them to this alien moon.
For this experience, I specifically checked out the Audible Originals audiobook. I wasn’t always sure about the voice direction, but nothing proved too jarring for me to accept. And, I confess, when I was listening on my earbuds at night, sound effects in at least one scene made me jump and look around.
Should be worth your attention if you’re a sci-fi fan looking for something new!
