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

Review: 2019.256 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Long-term drought in California is a very real threat. The story of the baseball player who loves his family but is losing his wife to the disease is touching.

Con: There’s no real plot. The nameless protagonist has no particular goal, and the events just happen with no real connection between them.

The premise is preposterous. A drought isn’t going to affect DNA. And the political message is stifling.

It made no real sense that FB ended up trying to rape the narrator. At that point, the story just fell apart.
