Just watch!

A cleverly constructed short story which gives the reader a glimpse into a possible future following the most mundane of actions. Thought provoking and attention holding, it includes cleverly turned descriptive phrases such as moving like 's cat burglar with tourette's'. Narration is by Matthew E. Berry, his voice lending itself well to the subject matter, flawed by occasional strange pronunciations, stifled instead of stifled, for example, but essentially a good performance. I was freely gifted with a complimentary copy of The Squirrel by the rights holder, at my request. Thank you. It was quirky and enjoyable, quick to read and left an impression which I am sure will remain with me for some time to come.

Good Short Short Listen

This is my second Travis McBee offering, and so far I am liking what I am reading/listening to...This little snippet is about Fred, a man who likes to go squirrel hunting out in the woods,..On one occasion he is approached by a man from the future and he is thanked for saving the world. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, so I will just leave it here. Again Matthew E. Berry does a fine job of narrating...I was gifted this audiobook, and this is my voluntary review.

Time Travel Saves the Day?

The movie, "The Butterfly Effect", delves into the ramifications of trying to keep bad things from happening in the future. Only problem is, the best intentions can't overcome dumb luck, or dumb bad luck.

The Squirrel

Short and sweet. I enjoyed this short story, It felt like an episode of the twilight zone in a good way, it is a little gory so not for kids at all. I don't want to give any spoilers, so I won't give any details. Narrator was great.

For every action there is a reaction good or bad

The Squirrel is a fast paced short story about consequences. The plot is amazing it focuses on choices that one must make daily but no one actually considers. The narrator Matthew E. Berry was excellent. This truly made me stop and consider what choices I make. I received this audio book at my request and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

A short , provocative and entertaining story

Fred hunts squirrels. He meets a strange man that tells him he is from the future and that Fred is famous for saving the world. A short and stimulating story that was bigger than i had anticipated. It was entertaining and presented very well by Matt. I highly recommend this provocative and fascinating story. Note: This book was given to me for free at my request and i provided this objective review voluntarily.

What if

This is short story about man out hunting who s confronted with different outcomes to his future and that of the world based on the everyday little things we do with or without thinking about them. How one small decision could change everything. Very thought provoking if you think about it and the narrator as usual does an excellent job in the telling of this story short though it is. I was given this audiobook free in exchange for voluntary and honest review.
