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

Review: 2020.086 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Of course the story isn’t really about Noah and the Ark; it’s about the way modern humanity has caused the extinction of so many species.

Con: There’s no real story here; it’s just a length recitation of the names of animals, and that gets really dull fast.
