Ouch - couldn't get passed the voices..

The acting was bad in this. I gave it 5 minutes before I quit. The dialogue was okay, but butchered by the acting.

I have no idea if the actual story was good or not.

Slow build approval

I was underwhelmed in the beginning (felt the dialogue was very stilted), but it grew on me, and it tied together in the end. In retrospect I'm sold.

Really funny and fresh!

My only complaint is that it’s too short. Audio background was amazing as well as the voice actors. Amazingly written and I love the absurd comedy with an undertone of drama. Would 100% recommend!

Such a fun story

I didn’t know what to expect with this book. I really enjoyed the performance of the narrators. Didn’t know where this story was going at first, but it all came together well. I enjoyed it. Glad I picked this as one of my free books this month.

Meh

story was not horrible but not very SF. Actually good narration. True SF fans will be left wanting.

A Quick Unique Experience

I haven't heard a story like this before and thoroughly enjoyed each of the narrators. The plot and connections between characters was really cool to unveil. Overall, pretty cool!

Thought Provoking and entertaining.

Even though this was a story about the future, I thought this was exceptionally poignant and resonated with the issues of today's immigrants and displaced persons. The author blended humor and pathos that moved the story along at a rapid pace while still effectively communicating a strong message. I am going to search out more works of this writer as I think they have a unique style and talent that tells a story while leaving the reader with thought provoking ideas. I really enjoyed this audible and would like to see this in a movie or play.

Feels like it was plucked out of a book

Intriguing and established a lot of context in a short story but feels like it was plucked out of the middle of a book. Worth the listen if your a scifi fan.
