The People v. Craig Morrison, by Alex Shvartsman and Alvaro Zinos-Amaro

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

Pro: Craig loses his lawsuit, but he finds a new purpose in life. Moreover, he seems to have at least partly forgiven himself for the role he played in the death of his comrade and the loss of his own legs.

Con: Although his story is very sad, he’s not trying very hard to change his situation. That may be very realistic in real life, but it makes him an unsatisfactory protagonist for most of the story.
