- Well, this was interesting. Of course, you have it in 1984, Soylent Green and Brave new world. However, this is a fresh writing on the subject. A few of the paragraphs were awkward, but over all, the writing was okay. The ending was good. Thank you for sharing.
Author\'s Response: Would you believe I haven't finished reading any of those works you've mentioned? Sure, I know the basic concept, but I've been meaning to finish 1984 for years (the book is taunting me from a bookshelf). Thanks for reviewing.
- Brave New World and 1984 were both required reading in high school. I saw the movie version of Soylent Green. All were scary looks into the near future that have not panned out. However, somethings point that they may not be so far fetched after all. And, there is nothing wrong with toying with the notion. I liked your approach that it would possibly be of no use to buck the system in the long run. Kind of dark, but that is me anyway.
Author\'s Response: Well, the simple explanation on why I wasn't required to read those is that I don't live in the United States. It's not a required book over here in the Philippines.
(#) armourdude 2006-04-04I would have liked tyo see a second chapter where sam gets his chip turned off. This was differnt and original apporch to what some would want our future to be.
This was not as harsh as 1984 but just as bleak in a nicer sort of way.
Author's responseThank you. I was going for a semi-ironic title in the mood... don't know if that shone through, though.
(#) fruit_addict 2007-03-24Wow! That was a great story. I loved the imagery and imagination put into it. It was an interesting point of veiw and thought. The whole different world in the future. There were a few wording mistakes though. Might want to check that out. Just added words that shouldn't be there.
