Mostly predictable stuff

The performance of each of the narrators was really good. The stories were interesting, but mostly predictable.

A bunch of short stories

What did you like best about The Egg and Other Stories? What did you like least?

Same repackaged twist at the end. Found myself more interested in guessing what the twist was going to be rather than listening to the stories. After a couple it got kinda easy to guess correctly.

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.

Nice Break !

Interesting stories, makes you think. Nice change from full length books during commute. If you like stories with a twist, you can't go wrong with this collection...just don't use a credit...trade a day of "cuppa Joe" $ for this and save your credit for the long ones !

MASTERFUL...

Some simply excellent shorts here... Whimsy, suspense, sensitivity, provocative speculation, and gotchas galore... You'll think you know what's going on, or going to happen, and BANG, you're wrong;). Mostly, it's a magnificent display of craftsmanship in the storyteller's art... I loved the Martian, and not so patiently wait for the upcoming Artemus, and only more so after finishing this... However, the price is a bit steep even when getting member discount given the very short length unless you're a diehard devotee... Many others will probably want to wait for sale, or read E edition...

What a wonderful journey!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Egg and Other Stories to be better than the print version?

I am honestly not sure as I only listened to the audible edition. However, that said, the narrators who produced these stories did a fantastic job and definitely drew me in to each short!

What did you like best about this story?

The twists that Mr. Weir brought about with each story. Each story had me anticipating and trying to guess at how the primary tale would shift.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The accentuation of the various tones each story brings about. For example, the emphasis of God's words in "The Egg" really adds another level of complexity to each story that I would have otherwise lost had I just read them.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed at just about every story and found myself really introspective at the end of "The Egg"
