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

Review: 2020.261 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The idea of gods held captive in a zoo is definitely a new one on me. And Tarek’s infatuation with Oliwia is well-played.

Con: There’s no actual plot here. Tarek simply visits the zoo and sees things happen. He’s got no goals other than making time with Oliwia.
