Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Tess is a great person for not wanting to leave her friends in the lurch and for wanting to put the world on a better track before she moves into the future.

Con: The ending is a bit of a letdown. It would be a better story if she never used the machine at all, and yet marveled at how well it turned out. It wouldn't be SF then, of course.
