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

Review: 2020.201 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: If you get far enough into it, there’s a twist that makes it worthwhile: Once you get past the beginning, it becomes clear that Ogone isn’t behaving this way because she wants to, and then it gets interesting.

Con: It’s hard to enjoy reading about an abusive, codependent relationship. The entire first half of the story was painful to get through.

Beyond that, it doesn’t quite seem to add up. So Ogone is a robot, but she’s also a young woman who was kidnapped?
