Fun Short Story

Any additional comments?

Interesting Short story. Enjoyed the twist on the Apocalyptic genre. Was quite impressed with the author's narration. Seems Mira Grant can do it all.

A Game I Don't Want to Play. Maybe.

Would you consider the audio edition of Apocalypse Scenario #683: The Box to be better than the print version?

I think I would prefer the print version, just so I could have read it slower to digest it more.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Probably the narrator of the game. Rita gave a really good performance for her.

Have you listened to any of Mira Grant’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Haven't heard anything else from her.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I think I did listen to the whole thing in one drive. Pretty short, but the perfect length.

Any additional comments?

The only thing I would have liked (and it may have been in there, but I missed it due to being tired) was a little more explanation of The Game's rules in general. Not for this specific scenario, but just in general, as they had played it for years and should have concrete, established rules. What was the goal of The Game? How were winners determined? Are the players trying to figure out just how to survive the apocalyptic scenarios, or to stop them? I ask this because this sounds like a game I would like to play.
