Fantastic!

A great start to understanding the titan series. If this story was only nominated for the nebula award I’d like to read the stories that won!

My favorite short in the series!

This was my favorite short story in this series. It's also a very sad story. Interview for the End of the World is the story of Darien Trass and the difficult choices he had to make in selecting only 3000 people to board his ship for Titan before the Earth is struck by an asteroid. He is left with the ultimate choice of who lives or most likely dies. Great addition to this series! Sadly, I prejudged this book because it had a different narrator. Greg Tremblay did not disappoint. He was the perfect voice for Mr Trass.

I have listened to 2 other Books in this series and could not pass on this short. Now I have to see if there are more from the beginning to listen too.

Endless talented author

What a wonderful story depicting the background story of the man and his attitude that started this story in reference to the Circuit series that follows. I enjoyed every minute of it and plan on listening to it again. Thank you Rhett for your endless talent. EDIT: After having had listened to this short but powerful story a second time, it occurred to me that I needed to remind everyone I could just how brilliant and insightful Rhett Bruno is. It’s really a shame he elected to be an author instead of a scientist or a leading edge surgeon/doctor or even a politician who could speak common sense to so many politicians that have none, zero. This story was of a man who struggled with his conscience, with every decision, with every life n his hands. In the end he decided to join the masses, the ones who would eventually suffer from his conscientious decisions. Does that sound familiar? Isn’t that what our president should do? Isn’t that what every elected official should do, instead of vying for power and riches? I mean how rich is enough? There’s a time when there’s a job to do. For the people, for the constituents. Being elected to office isn’t a “whew, I got here, now let’s have some fun!” ticket. Sacrifice is what it takes, just like Mr. Darien Trass sacrificed himself. I’m not saying throw yourself on your sword, just do the job you were meant to. President Congress House Senate It’s not too late! I apologize Mr. Bruno if I’m reading more into your story than you intended, just like I did long ago with “The Roach”, but whether you intend to consciously or not, you write strong messages. To everyone else, this is a very short story that reads really long. Please read it. Read it more than once like I was able too. Thank you Mr. Bruno for being one of few authors that I know of that are capable of just about anything.
