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

Review: 2019.143 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The behavior of the app itself is quite interesting.

Con: We never find out why Em wanted to do this. As a result, the story ends up being about as interesting as listening to someone telling you about a dream they had
