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

Most of the story is narrated, including personal feelings. The political content is very strong, and the narrator hammers it in, in case anyone missed it. The editing was very poor, leaving in errors like "it'd have been advisable to disappoint the call for a day or two."
