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.

A Great Short Story Foreshadowing Corporate Future
Would you listen to Good Morning... Processes Must Be Improved again? Why?
In a few years, sure. It's a quick book at around an hour, but it's pretty cute.
What did you like best about this story?
The dichotomy between the human and the computer is pretty darn funny. Analyzing our emotional human responses in a logical manner is quite amusing.
What does Christopher M. Allport bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Honestly, Allport's voice work and editing really doesn't impress me.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Yeah, it's the future, and no, things haven't changed.
