Review: 2020.215 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s certainly a complex setting. There are ghost sheep which yield special milk that sells for a high price. There’s a war out there keeping prices up. On the other hand, the effort for two has become too much, and with it so easy and painless to simply pass over to the next world, it’s not a big surprise Who Tames Lions decides to go.

Con: There’s not a lot to this story. Who Goes Against a Waste of Waters isn’t trying to do anything other than get through each day, and even that proves impossible. There may be a symbolic meaning I’ve missed, but the surface story is just depressing.
