Clever short story with a memorable hook
I didn't know what I was getting into when I downloaded this, but I ended up with an entertaining 40 minutes of sci-fi for a cheap price. The idea behind how the moon is destroyed is spooky and catchy. This is a nicely executed short story that feels a bit like a fun TWILIGHT ZONE.

Interesting concept, but awkward narration
It was an interesting short science fiction story, and appropriately priced for such a snippet of an audiobook. The story was interesting and fairly hard sci-fi, but lacked any sort of real conflict or hook - no drama, no action, just a sort of bored resignation with some side comments mentioning that other people were upset at the loss of the moon.
What really disappointed me about this audiobook was the narration - I had to keep checking the publishing date to make sure I wasn't getting a story from the 50s. It just didn't match up, the hard modern science fiction and near-future technology with the hokey, small-town, old-fashioned narration.
Still, all in all it was an interesting story, and worth at least the three dollars and half an hour of your time.
