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

Pro: The plot is entirely about the doppelgänger's efforts to leave the cave and enter the real world. For what purpose, we cannot know. Perhaps to seek revenge. But the story ends with her escape.

Con: We're left really, really wanting to know what the doppelgänger is up to, and we feel a bit cheated at the end.
