I both listened to the audio version and read the story afterwards as part of the 2010 Best Science Fiction anthology. I thought the concept of the enormous alien organism was interesting enough to merit two stars all by itself, but I did not resonate with either of the main characters in this story. And the revelation at the end at what was going on felt to me like it came out of nowhere - I could not see how this was reasoned or intuited out.
