I did not anticipate the ending at all -- despite the fact that this is a short listen, and probably geared toward teens, I found it completely enjoyable, moderately thought-provoking, and entirely worth it. I highly suggest this if you enjoy dystopic stories or any sort of technology.

First surprise ending in some time
What did you love best about 0.4?
It's not often that I am caught off guard by a story's ending. I often find myself noticing subtle clues that lead to the "big reveal" at the end. But with this story, all of my guesses turned out wrong. It wasn't until the final scenes that the actual plot struck me, and it was thoroughly enjoyable.
What did you like best about this story?
The future-past tense in which this story is told took a little getting used to, but after I did I thought it worked perfectly. I don't think the impact would have been the same if told differently
What does Thomas Judd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I enjoyed the way he switched from the future perspective analyzing the story told by the protagonist and the actual tale itself. It made me wonder how people in our future will interpret things we leave behind.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Other than being a little blind sided by the ending, I didn't have any particularly extreme reactions.
Any additional comments?
This book was a genuinely good listen/read. I will probably listen to it again and see if there are any subtle clues to the end I might have missed.
