Wish I'd Read the Reviews

I paid for this "short story." My own fault, I guess, because if you don't pay attention, you will pay a price, but this is an all too brief 21 minute of introduction. It should be offered as a free teaser to the actual STORY, otherwise, it's a rip-off. I've already taken responsibility for not being more observant, but were I casting blame, I'm not sure who to point a finger at for not making it clear that this is not a $3.95 story, but rather a $3.95 (or 1 valuable credit) introduction to the story concept. It is, as others have commented, a teaser. I will probably buy the book when it comes out, but for the teaser, I have to cry foul on offering this for a fee.

Wait, what, that's it?

I really like John Scalzi's books, so I got this one. Is it worth $4 or a credit? For 21 minutes, no. I may as well have sought out the text and read it. The narration is good and the story, what little of it that was there, was a fun listen and I wanted more. There is a good wanting more and there is a bad wanting more, this is the bad wanting more, because there isn't.
