This is a fun little story--it certainly brightened my day when I first read it. There is a certain degree of depth to it, but it's more of a humorous bit than serious literature. Good read if you are looking for something quick that will bring a smile to your face. The ending is quite original. You'll think it's some kind of sci-fi thing, but in the end, it's not really. It has a sci-fi flavor to it, but there's no complicated technology to wrap your head around. Just a whimsical view of human nature.

This story made me laugh. It wasn't what I was expecting since I know that Joe writes mainly space opera. To me this is an original idea executed brilliantly. I never thought about how much thought actually goes into having a conversation and what influences what we say and how we saw it.

4.0 out of 5 stars What makes us tick September 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the cutest and funniest story that adds a smile to the day. Ever wonder what makes us tick? The story of LZ1527 has it figured out, even down to matchmaking. This short story is very creative and original in thought and is well planned out. It's funny, cheerful, scientific in a fantastical way, and fantastical in a scientific way.

Hop aboard with the blinking screens, numbers, the Optical Reconnaissance, the captain and his technicians and see what happens to the Chris Murray and the Michelle Walker. See what the command codes are and what they mean.

This ia pure fun and enjoyment.

I absolutely loved this short story! Very creative and made me grin through almost the whole thing! Once what was going on clicked with me, I thought it was very ingenious.
