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

There's no coherent story here. Just a set of vignettes.

The story has a group of people fleeing a ruined Earth for a planet at another star. As ever, this is a silly idea because it's almost impossible to imagine anything that would make things on Earth so bad that it would be easier to leave than to try to fix things here.
