Reviews of The Carrier by Stephanie Flint

Mary Blackwell reviewed on Oct. 18, 2014

In many ways I loved the confused narrative which gave us sufficient hints to ensure we knew what was going on but it didn't satisfy me fully as I felt I did not know enough to care about the characters or the past and future worlds. I am more drawn to stories with characters I can understand and care about but here I did not feel especially worried or glad about what might happen to the girl.

This story adds another aspect to the time travel theme.

Instead of going back in time and doing something that changes the future of humanity, this tale explores what could happen by going into the future with a simple disease that had been eradicated by then.
