Sharon Oh dear, you didn't like this one then. Why ?

Simeon I thought it was ok. I just didn't like the style the author chose. The southern accents in particular irked me to no end. I also found the story a little prosaic. It wasn't terrible by any means. I just wasn't moved, you know? I also had bones to pick with the ethical motivations of all the characters, and I found them mostly unrelateable. IMHO it could have been better if the author had explored all the ontological implications of the dispute at the heart of the story.
