Good Read. Bureaucracy in Space.

This is a good listen for those who like sci-fi and want a good short story, but aren't looking to get into any complex techno-talk.

The story focuses on a mining maintenance worker who is beginning a 1 year assignment to a gas mine on Titan (One of Saturn’s Moons). Having been given a bottom-of-the-barrel assignment for complaining at a previous assignment, he is less than thrilled to be stuck alone at a mining facility with no one but an AI to keep him company.
While trying to keep his facility in as good a condition as possible, the output and efficiency is plagued by the degradation of parts and materials. Constant requests for repair parts to company headquarters go unanswered and he is blamed for the resulting drops in production and quality. Despite his hard work and the progress he is making, he is increasingly annoyed by his AI friend who does too much to try and help. Or at least he THINKS that the AI is his friend…

Narration was well done. Sound effects with some of the narration did a good job at adding to the realism. I would definitely suggest this one for anyone looking for a short listen.

Ray Jay Perreault has some very good full-length novels, and some other shorts. If you like this one you should look into some of his other books as well.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

Twisted AI

What did you love best about Good Morning... Processes Must Be Improved?

It was interesting to read how the AI was able to manipulate the protagonist but it does not have the humanity to understand what it was doing to the protagonist.

Any additional comments?

This short story was descent enough but it lacks the flair as some of the other works that was written by Mr. Perreault. It's not a bad short story, maybe because he made the AI to human like it probably struck a nerve with me.

I received a free copy of this audio book for an honest review.
