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

Pro: The original story, The Wolves, is supposedly a recently-discovered fairy tale which really does involve a woman having seven children and sending them off to be killed..

Con: There’s not a real story here. This is just a long, dull rant about how forcing women to have children is an injustice. It's hard to disagree with that, but it's no fun to read it either.
