Great little read!
Yes. It is a very interesting story with a bit of a twist. I would listen again to catch hints that I may have missed in the first read through.
It definitely has a great bit of drama to it, not sure I can think of any other short story to compare it to. It has elements of Sci-Fi and Dystopian genres.
He has a great pace and a very soothing tone. It is all from the little boy's POV but it never comes across as childish in his read. He brings the character to life in a way that makes him feel wise beyond his years. Terrific pace in the read really keeps the story moving along.
It is definitely a one sitting listen because of the length and the content. I really wanted to know what was happening. I would love to see it expanded and turn into a novella. There are a lot of places the author could still take the story.
Loved the twist at the end. It really sold the whole story and made me hungry to know what comes next!

Awh, with a weird twist.
