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

Review: 2019.518 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: From Orsolya’s perspective, Otto really does sound like an idiot, and this whole business of finding a foot that fits the slipper does look pretty ridiculous. I particularly liked the implication that the way Cinderella made it work was by swapping the shoe for one she herself made—with Orsolya’s assistance.

Con: It’s short and sweet, but there’s not really much to it.
