Review: 2019.252 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s a fairly realistic portrayal of what it might be like after sea-level rise has erased a coastal community. The government offered a payoff, most people left, a few diehards are sticking around, but it’s more and more miserable and dangerous.

Con: There aren’t any good people in this story; there’s no one to root for.
