really liked it

Rating: 4* of five

A beautiful fable of life's central issue: greed. How awful it felt to write that sentence.

Particularly important to read in this horrendous passage in American history.

Thank you!

Cecily One expects dystopias to ring painfully true in troubled times, but I see current events in so many other books, as do you and other GR friends. In a way, it's a tribute to those books, but I'm also sad that they become tainted.
