Publisher's summary

When a myopic author suddenly sees microscopic alien entities before his challenged eyes he first believes it to be a sign of insanity. But when the aliens implore him we must go green and clean up our dirty planet - or else, he must test his faith by engaging his EPA scientist girlfriend to join his quest to save our Earth.

Great narrator, simple story

For me, the narrator is always the most important in an audiobook. This narrator does a great job and she is very easy to listen to. The story here is somewhat simple with a strong dose of global warming activism. The “science” component is a bit on the week/simplistic side. You just have to ignore that to get the most out of it.

Bazinga

I enjoyed this short story. I could visualize everything as the narrator brought the story to life. The plot was interesting and kept me engaged for the most part. I wondered off a couple of times and had to rewind. Overall it was a satisfactory story. It was a short 35 minute listen at my listening speed. The narrator did a fine job and I have no complaints.

Disclaimer: I've been listening at 2x speed for so long anything else sounds like slow motion. My enjoyment of the narrator is based on my listening speed. I only leave 5 stars for books I've listened to multiple times. I'll update my review if I listen again.

I requested this book from the author, narrator, or publisher in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Great Concept in Short Form

The environment matters and we need to be aware of our effect has on it. This is a mix of romance, hope and sci-fi. It would be better served if it took one or two of these out.

The plot is rushed and could really benefited from more mania, panic or urgency. It was cobbled together making the reader/listener make the jumps.

Interesting

Great story. Interesting way to think about aliens being microscopic yet very intelligent. I did not see the end coming. Definitely worth a listen

interesting sci-fi short story

The Narrator did a really good job. The book was an interesting sci-fi story, light, some details, main character development. I'll be interested in reading some of his other books.

myopic

This was a short entertaining story that had my mind clicking and my heart racing a bit. I was sad fot Wilfred, because he almost had it all, but at least he was happy and he and his girlfriend were heros imo. Not what I expected, but I enjoyed it. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this story and am giving an honest review. The narrator was good.

Interesting premise

Is it insanity or true aliens? Myopic is a great title that fits the story. The author writes about a myopic writer, which gives some great depth to the story. I liked the premise, and listening to this story, I give praise to the author and the narrator. Sometimes you just have to sit back and listen, and enjoy, and that's what I did with this story. It's a journey of faith in oneself and what is out there, the unknown. I enjoyed the story and the narrator engaged the reader with the drama.
