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

Review: 2020.169 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The writing makes this dystopia seem very real. The base idea of a doctor who treats a young terrorist/revolutionary and the link between them has potential.

Con: There’s no plot; things just happen to the protagonists. At the end, I’m not even sure they’ve learned anything nor had an inner revelation, much less actually accomplished anything.
