    "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...

    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"

    "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 !

    Story
    "TMI?"

    I loved the Martian. I listened to it at least three times. It was just the right blend of realistic science, humor and human drama. Compared to that these stories are all about surprise endings and a weird cat thing. I'm glad it was short, and I'm glad it finished with 'The Egg'. I've Pre-ordered Artemis and have high hopes. But these stories felt like they told me more about the author than I wanted to know.
