I won this one from a Goodreads giveaway.

I'm a sucker for dystopian stories, so I happily gobbled this up in one sitting.

I was worried that something as complicated as a dystopian world wouldn't translate well in a short story, but it worked for me. We're given just enough information to know what's going on, and we can fill in the rest of the details ourselves. The jumps in time were easy to follow.

(view spoiler) It reminded me of a Twilight Zone episode.

It's a quick fun read--and it's written really well, too!
