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

Pro: The narrator's obsession with catching and cooking a fish is comical.

Con: The ending is very confusing. The father's actions in the real world somehow triggered a leveling-up in the VR game?

The fish couldn't possibly be safe to eat.

It's hard to imagine an ecological disaster that would destroy every tree and every blade of grass and not kill every human being.
