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

Pro: We really feel for Charlotte. We admire her determination to do things right. To scrimp and save. We feel her pain when she loses her money, but we admire her for being true to herself.

Con: Her unwillingness to go to the police is hard to credit, given what we've seen of her world.

  1. Interesting ideas about identity as long as I don't think too much about how it would all work. Like why wouldn't the body salesman already have tossed the dead brain and swabbed out the brain cavity?
