I listened to the audiobook which is a new translation by Bill Johnston, commissioned by Audible.com. With crisp clear language, it reads like a contemporary novel. The first half is downright frightening with ghosts aboard a 3 man space station. The Narrator, Alessandro Juliani, has a way with voices. Very expressive and spooky.

The alien lifeform is completely unique. I didn't see it coming. I loved this book. I don't know how I missed this sci-fi classic before, but I'm glad to have waited for this new and powerful edition.
