Some books are 8- hrs of good listening. Then there was this one. Its a good story but i wasted a credit on a 34- min book

This was turned into a much longer story and eventually the inspiration for the movie Deep Impact (according to the intro).
No similarities to that movie at all other than the main theme of a possible meteor impact with the Earth.
A great short story is one that makes you want to learn more about the world that's built within. It's almost a shame for the story to end. For over a half hour, you're transported to this possible future of planet Earth. I found myself wishing for more back story, more history of this future Earth, more glimpses into this future world.
I wouldn't use a credit on it, but it's well worth the purchase price. This narrator has done MANY other short stories by Arthur C Clarke and he's one of the good ones.
This specific story is NOT in the "Collected Short Stories of Arthur C Clarke" which is why I bought it.
The Audible purchase of that short story collection mentioned above IS worth the credit, has over 51 hours of audio, over 100 short stories, and 3 narrators. I purchased this short because it is not included in that larger collection and I've been on a straight binge of short stories by Clarke. I'm really glad I got this one!
