$5 For 8 Minutes??? Really?

Any additional comments?

Okay... This WAS a great little short story by the wonderful Robert Sheckley, but I honestly cannot get over the price I paid for an eight-minute story.
When I purchased this, I should have looked at its length. Technically, I guess it IS sort of my fault. But whatever. This is the internet, I'm allowed to be enraged by the mundane.

But yeah, as I was saying; This was a pretty cool little story. Very simple, yet extremely memorable.

As for the narration - Mike Vendetti AGAIN?! Mike really needs to branch out his hobbies. I think this must be approaching the 20th audiobook I have listened to where Mike Vendetti is the narrator. I'm not saying he's bad or anything. He's actually pretty good. But it would be nice to hear a different voice reading sci-fi short stories. Go & look up how many titles Mr. Vendetti has narrated. It's STUPID how big of a number it is.

I don't know whether I can recommend that you purchase this one or not. If you have a bunch of extra money that you don't know what to do with, then yeah, totally buy this one.
