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

Pro: This attempt to reimagine The Cold Equations is a lot more cheerful than the original.

Con: The fantasy science is extremely difficult to swallow. There should be no shortage of storage space, for example. Also, it makes no sense that most of the storage would be erasable, given its purpose. And the underlying premise that society decided to delete older books and languages (and yet wanted to reach the stars) is hard to credit.
