Well written story. While sad it was still a delightful listen. The narrator was very good and her voice was perfect for this short story.

Nobody knew where it came from. Nobody knew why it came. When an eight-foot-tall man made of stone appears in the middle of a busy city center one July afternoon, two-bit (and antisocial) reporter Andy Pointer assumes it's just a publicity stunt. Indeed, so does everyone else...until the Stone Man begins to walk, heading silently through the wall of the nearest building, flattening it, and killing several people inside as a result.

If you could sum up The Stone Man in three words, what would they be?

This is an engaging book. The author really knows how to write compelling Science Fiction.
The narration is excellent.
Because of adult language this is not a book I would give to children.
