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

This is narration, not a story.

The science in it is very hard to believe--silver strands hanging in the air aren't going to warm up a planet that ought to be frozen solid, much less give it an oxygen atmosphere.

  1. This felt like it was trying too hard to be literary. So it was pretty but read more like a poem than a story.
