really liked it
Read from August 08 to 09, 2012

I guess I'm over the amazement I felt at discovering these books, and am now more of my hyper-critical self!

Still a great story, but it dragged like the other three didn't (at least for me.) Howey is incredible in the short story/novella genre, but as much as I wanted 'more' I didn't want the same amount of story in twice the pages. That's not the 'more' I was seeking!

Some bits were really implausible. . . the ability to switch to making guns, really quickly and really high production. The ability to use those guns when you've never seen or fired one. Climbing 90 floors and thinking you had a remote chance at it being a secret. And so on.

And yet, I press on to the fifth story, because despite flaws, the story is worth every page.
