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

Review: 2020.248 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: A sad story of a young man whose life is ruined by a software error and by people who trusted the software more than they did people. The ending is shocking.

Con: The story lays it on so think it’s a little hard to suspend disbelief for it, and the protagonist, even though he isn’t guilty of what he was charged with, isn’t exactly someone you want to root for.
