    "Great stories but very short duration. "

    The stories involved are short but with great unexpected twists at the end of each story. Unlike other audiobooks this lasts under a couple of hours and is finished way too soon.

    Story
    "What a wonderful journey!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Egg and Other Stories to be better than the print version?

    I am honestly not sure as I only listened to the audible edition. However, that said, the narrators who produced these stories did a fantastic job and definitely drew me in to each short!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twists that Mr. Weir brought about with each story. Each story had me anticipating and trying to guess at how the primary tale would shift.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The accentuation of the various tones each story brings about. For example, the emphasis of God's words in "The Egg" really adds another level of complexity to each story that I would have otherwise lost had I just read them.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed at just about every story and found myself really introspective at the end of "The Egg"

    "MASTERFUL..."

    Some simply excellent shorts here... Whimsy, suspense, sensitivity, provocative speculation, and gotchas galore... You'll think you know what's going on, or going to happen, and BANG, you're wrong;). Mostly, it's a magnificent display of craftsmanship in the storyteller's art... I loved the Martian, and not so patiently wait for the upcoming Artemus, and only more so after finishing this... However, the price is a bit steep even when getting member discount given the very short length unless you're a diehard devotee... Many others will probably want to wait for sale, or read E edition...

    "Excellent short stories"

    The performances are something you can't really describe. The writing and performance continue to be great, as they were with Artemis. I found myself listening to chapters again it was so engrossing.

    "Worth each and every penny"

    Science fiction with a heaping spoonful of irony.and darkness.

    Wow. Not long enough. I could listen to these stories all day. Definitely a great nod to the old TZ stories, with amazing twists and turns. You really have no idea where any of the stories are heading until you're rounding the last bend.

    Great job Andy, but you screwed up. Now we need more. Get crackin', Weir.

    "Nice Break !"

    Interesting stories, makes you think. Nice change from full length books during commute. If you like stories with a twist, you can't go wrong with this collection...just don't use a credit...trade a day of "cuppa Joe" $ for this and save your credit for the long ones !

    "Great stuff"

    I fell in love with Andy Weir while reading The Martian, and his short stories are more of the same. My only issue (which may only be a problem if you binge them all at once as I did) is that most of them rely on the twist ending, which gets a bit repetitious after a while. Otherwise these are all great stories from a fantastic new author.

    "I was searching for this book! "

    I have been looking for the story "The Egg" for quite some time. I read it once on an internet messaging board and could never find it again. The other stories in this book were a perfect accompaniment to The Egg. very well done.

    "overall good entertainment."

    A few gems with really interesting plot twists. A few groaners like the butcher. All well read and performed.
