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

Pro:  It’s fun to learn about the Venus colony and the “redacts” she meets there. At the end, we’re not surprised she decides to stay.

Con: It’s never clear why they want her to stay. It’s all too easy a solution. Also, even with their rules about not going to lower floors, it seems that they’re not trying very hard to hide what they’re up to. Why the need for spying?
