The story was a refreshing short story. I stumbled upon it by looking for my other 2 favorites by H.G. Wells. I went into the story not really expecting much since the story was very short compared to his other works but I was pleasantly surprised. The story drops you into the mind of a father and an experience with his son. The ending was not what I expected, but then after all I did not expect anything. This is a good story and expresses the mind of H.G. Wells a little bit more.
The narrator was very good. His expression in his voice are great and he does a very good job in separating out the characters. I will definitely be subscribing to his free story podcast from his website.
