First let me admit that it is going to be very difficult to write a meaningful review of The Egg. Being 8 minutes long and all. I first saw this story on some unknown website somewhere. I read it, got goosebumps all over my body. Read it over and over and over. Shared it with my friends on all the social sites. Read it out loud, sorry R.C. Bray, to my wife. I was mesmerized.
Not sure if there is some sort of underlying religious stuff hidden within, as I know nothing of religion other than some people hate it and others love it.
Where the magic lays is how every word spoke to my soul, or my spirit, or my subconscious, whatever you want to call it. It made me start asking questions about the meaning of life.
Beautifully written, thought provoking, Weir is a master of putting words together.
Even though it probably took you longer to read this then this story is long, and it definitely took me longer to write it. Do yourself a favor and give this one a listen. There will be the two of us dollars expense on an audio production in awhile.
R.C. Bray delivers every word seamlessly. While managing to differentiate the two characters. I love how you can throw any book at him and he will perform it like there is no other.

When I started listening to this short story and I do mean short...8 minutes, I didn't have many expectations. Who can really write anything of substance that lasts 8 minutes? The answer - Andy Weir can. This is a thought-provoking story and just cements the knowledge that Andy Weir is a fantastic writer.
R.C.Bray's performance is brilliant as ever. If anyone can make you believe what you are listening too, especially in 8 minutes, it's Bray. The writing and narration really compliment each other, so much so, I'm going to listen to it again, right now.

nicely read. very relaxing voice. and an interesting idea. but, I still feel an 8 minute rendition can't be classed as a book. nor a story. it's barely a page! and I genuinely think this should of been FREE. perhaps as a taster... for the main event? which maybe Andy should write. based on this idea, he could write a super Novel I'm certain. so... come on Andy... let's write something thought provoking, and interesting about this God? who is he? where's he from? and if one soul is EVERYONE in this universe. who is the soul in the next universe? and the next, and the next? there is a higher purpose here... tell us your thought's on it, make it at least a 10 hour book. and maybe, just maybe this idea will be snapped up by Ridley Scott too! but I doubt he can do much with 8 minutes..

I got this after riding the high from the Martian, while it is utterly different I am not disapointed. 8 minutes, what do you have to lose?

It's been a month since I listened to this but I can't stop thinking about it.
This is potent storytelling.
