    Story
    "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"

    Story
    "Significantly Better Than The Martian!"

    When I picked this up, my only thought was, "I hope this is close to as good as The Martian." It became obvious almost instantly that it was better.

    I quickly came to really like the young, feisty female anti-hero that is the main character. Also Weir did a superb job of world building for his semi-futuristic moon community. There were some similarities to Kristine Kathryn Rusch's work, but that is only to the good. The hard science aspect of the book is a strength, although it is less overbearing than in The Martian.

    The only downside is that toward the climax of the story, the main character goes a little too far and may become too unsympathetic to a portion of readers. I was a bit turned-off, but not so much that I didn't thoroughly enjoy the ending. If there is any area that could have been improved, it would be the large element of chance toward the story's end. One can only hope that Weir will turn this into a series.

    Lastly, let me talk about the wonderful narration. Rosario Dawson is now my favorite female, American narrator, and my Audio book total is >1000.

    Story
    "Big Things in Small Packages"

    There are some highly effective short pieces here; very thought-provoking and whimsical. I appreciated the ones with twist endings, and the Twilight Zone tribute was the highlight of the collection.

    "Fantastic stories, wish there were more!"

    This is a fantastic set of stories by the author of The Martian. I first discovered Andy via The Egg, and it has been a great ride! I highly recommend this title.

    "Great Stories!"

    This is a collection of short stories by Andy Weir. If you're a fan of Weir, you've likely already read The Egg, which is fabulous in my opinion. These stories are all also very good, although The Egg was more profound for me. They all definitely have a nice twist at the end. I will say that by the story before The Egg, you're more in the know and are waiting for the twist, which made it more predictable. If you're a fan of Andy Weir, this is a must listen for your collection.
