great short stories.

Exceptionally good. The chef was my favorite although they are all great. I hope he writes more!

These stories were so well written, with amazing twists - I listened to some of them twice in a row!

Instinct isn't always right

Sure glad I gave it a second listen. The first time, I was distracted and as a result, underwhelmed. Second time around, I paid attention and woohoo! Twists everywhere and trust me, you know NOTHING for certain. Definitely recommend

A Nice set of Short Stories

Highly recommended overall.

Overall worthy of a listen

Some stories were better than others, but the lower limit was decent and the upper limit was really enjoyable. Overall, a collection worthy of a listen.

a little predictable but great anyways

each story had a twist. i found most of the twists predictable but it did not diminish the enjoyment of the story.

Excellent short stories

The performances are something you can't really describe. The writing and performance continue to be great, as they were with Artemis. I found myself listening to chapters again it was so engrossing.

Twisty storries

I liked the short novelles. All a bit different, all a bit same, they make you think, they make you feel. Sad that it is short

Ehh, not his best

I'm not exactly great at guessing plot twists, but these stories weren't exactly tricky, or very enjoyable. If you try too hard to be tricky, you end up with groans. I was bummed, but not everything can be Martian great.

Fun short story collection

Very interesting collection of short stories with lots of unexpected twists.

You won't be disappointed.
I only wish there were more stories in the collection, or hope there is another collection in the future.

Not the best Collection of Tales, Disappointing

This was a collection of various science fiction stories from Andy Weir. I was disappointed in this collection. His Moriarty audiobook was excellent. None were particularly memorable for me. The cast was excellent.
