Review: 2018.513 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Well, on the bright side, it does look like you survived both the disease and the treatment.

Con: Although there is a kind of story here, there’s no character development. There seems to be a very strong message of “medical treatment is inexact—bad things can still happen” but I’m not sure what the point is.
