really liked it
bookshelves: 2012, shorter-stories, books-i-own-ebook, dystopian-utopian

This book nailed it. It could (almost) stand alone as a book. The last few lines are enough to make it a classic in my view. Brilliant.

... It still has a stupid name.

Cassi aka Snow White Haggard What is with the name. I keep seeing your reviews in my update emails and it looks like the title to a knitting book.

Cass Sorry for the review overload. It is a really good dystopian novel that has been serialised into tiny novellas and given a very silly name.

The omnibus edition is actually a really reallu good read.

Cassi aka Snow White Haggard Oh no it's okay! I just keep seeing the knitting-themed names then the dystopian description and I'm like "huh?"

Edmund Davis-Quinn the name works for me ... it's simple and catchy.

Cass Have you read all the books in this series? What do you think of them?
