Excellent… An amazing book; a remarkable book. Just very very interesting… I suggest you get it today. This story is terrific. I was completely immersed, watching Klus slowly paint a picture of a society gone wrong through the eyes and discovery of some truly compelling characters.
This book is exactly why I hate short stories!! I loved it from the first page and couldn't put it down!! I remember while reading it, thinking it was so good I should slow down because like a good glass of wine, it's over too soon. In a very short story, you find your head full of ideas and visualizing everything. After I finished it, I thought about it again and again.
There is so much I want to say about this short story, but I do not want to give anything away. You get sucked in pretty fast, and flipping pages is just EASY. Frank T. Klus puts a fantastic spin on this story, slipping between what you think is happening with what actually happens. Highly recommended.
America was in the throes of a malignancy. Unemployment made up a quarter of the population, and a merciless group of corporatists had a death grip over the American government. Programs to help the poor and unemployed were consolidated into a single program, designed to end social services for those who needed them the most. The American dream of a steady job, house, good schools, and few worries, was replaced by the dream of getting rich.
