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

Review: 2019.441 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: This is a woman’s story about how a time traveler ruined her marriage.

The story does a nice job of showing what a wonderful couple they are, and how much in love they are. Yet her obsession with the time traveler and the future that she’s convinced is inevitable leads to the destruction of the wonderful relationship she and her husband had.

Con: I find it hard to be sympathetic to someone who would let something like this ruin their relationship.
