RATING: 3.5 stars

This story brings up the question: is the future already set up, or there are many possible futures and our actions will lead us to one or another path? Interesting idea, however the characters are one-dimesional, and, as another reviewer said, there are so many references to pop culture that I doubt that on a long run a lot of people will be able to connect with the story.

Andreea Daia This short-story is high on my to-read list.

About the uni-dimensionality of the actors, you can't expect fully fledged characters in merely 32 pages. Usually these stories focus only of that one feature that is necessary to send a message. A short story is not about a character but about making a point.
