Across the Universe

I'm really glad I clicked the link to read this. The opening segments were so hilarious that I assumed that it would be a comedy, plain and simple. But you took it much further than that and built a world that was involved and somehow felt complete, even though you only hinted at some aspects of it. It felt like a movie in how it was paced and how it moved from setting to setting. There were times when I wanted more detail, but that's just a minor quibble since the bare-bones handling really worked with your writing style. I love the hints you gave about the technology and how it was used/abused. I can see you doing even more with this. Maybe not the same character if you've told all of his story that you want to tell, but definitely in the same dystopian, futuristic world. Although, I have to say that I would really, really like to see what his case can do now that he's free to use it again. He's like an intergalactic James Bond only much more humanitarian. And that case is just awesome. I mean...I want one of those bad boys myself. Anyway, thanks for the read. I needed a good dose of science fiction and you gave it to me in spades. Thanks!
