    Apocalypse Scenario #683: The Box the most tense 22 minutes that I can remember having in a long time. While this is not a complete story, it ends perfectly and left me breathless. The plot unfold quickly, builds to a climax and boom it's all over. If expanded upon this could make a fantastic new full length audiobook. I am not disappointed at all, if all novellas were this good, they just might be the only thing I ever listened to. If need a quick fix of apocalyptic suspense, look no further, you will not be let down.

    I am so impressed my the narration skills of Grant, most of the time when authors narrate their own stories it leave something to be desired, as they are not professional voices. I really do not think that her performance could have been improved in any way whatsoever. Mira please feel free to narrate more of your stories, I will be maybe not first in line but as close as I can get.

    Interesting Short story. Enjoyed the twist on the Apocalyptic genre. Was quite impressed with the author's narration. Seems Mira Grant can do it all.

    If you could sum up Apocalypse Scenario #683: The Box in three words, what would they be?

    Edge of seat


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

    She wrote the story so she knew the characters. As she read the text she brought them to life and made me care about them and forget that they were not real.


    If you could rename Apocalypse Scenario #683: The Box, what would you call it?

    Nothing, I love the title!


    Any additional comments?

    Great short story I would love to have more the scenarios done as stories or for a squeal to find out what the group decided.

    "Well Done!"

    Very thought provoking with a Twilight Zone feel at the end. Mira Grant is an amazing author and the narration was flawless. Nice to hear an author reading her own work, and doing it well!
