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

Review: 2019.362 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The story does a nice job of illustrating the challenge of being objective about data.

Con: Carl is the protagonist, not Zack, since he’s the only one trying to achieve a goal, but we don’t really learn much about Carl, so the story isn’t very strong.
