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

Review: 2020.210 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The best part is the dramatic ending, although the setup and backstory are both interesting.

Although the Jemmites are pretty awful religious fanatics, their behavior makes a lot more sense if you believe they really are working to prevent the end of the world.

Con: The side stories recounting the mythology and the story (prophecy?) of the two brothers went on for too long. Another problem is that when we reach the end, we seem to have been rooting for the bad guys all along.
