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

Review: 2019.179 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: This is the story of a doomed romance at the end of the world. Things may be falling apart, but Elodie and Marina hold onto the ones that really matter.

Con: It’s quite a downer, particularly if you assume the last line means they both died.

For most of the story, society is working a lot better than I'd expect it to be, given the extent of the destruction.
