Great Ideas But A Little Repetitive...

Any additional comments?

This was a really neat short story by Simak.

The ideas put forward in it are completely original yet very simple as far as sci/fi goes.
Its only problem is Simak's repetitiveness about exactly what is going on during some of the strange parts. Had it been slightly more straight forward, I might have given this a full five stars.

Narration performance is well above average.

Check this one out if you're a fan of sci/fi.
