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

Pro: The story is well-told, with clean narration and natural dialogue.

Con: The narrator is an idiot; what one person invented, another can also invent. Killing the first inventor only delays things.

The uncertainty at the end is odd; he didn’t murder anyone. All he did was do nothing and let the man die. Bad, still, but not the same thing.
