Finished my story and Beta-readers are slow as hell:

I just finished a short sci-fi story I'm pretty proud of. My beta-readers (aka friends) are taking a long-ass time getting around to reading it, so I thought I'd post it here to see if I could get feedback.

Of course, with the "LOOK AT ME" nature of this forum sometimes, that may be easier said than done.

Your first paragraph is weak. I get what you were trying to do, but you don't do it with the first paragraph.

The second paragraph is a bit better at doing it though, and the third is solid.

From then on, it's readable, but I don't see anything much like a real hook, at least for me. Still reading though. Just hit the main plot, we will see how it holds.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
