Review by: Robert Zimmermann on Aug. 16, 2014 :
This story had an interesting concept, but it lacked a crucial piece of a story: conflict. There are a few places that conflict could be added, and it felt like it was going to develop at some point, but then by the end, it nothing close to a conflict arose. There was only a very minor internal conflict with the main character and her new stage in life.

What this felt like, due to what I've said above, was the opening scene for another work this author might have in mind. On it's own, it wasn't satisfying and left me a bit annoyed. I enjoyed Jefferson's writing and build up of his main character as well as what we see of the world building, but all that seemed to be of no consequence by the time I was done.

I'll be checking out other work from this author because I liked his style. My only hope is that there's something more to them than I found in this one.

Not overly good or bad. David Blake's review summerizes my thoughts as well.

Hmmm, I was a bit bemused by this, if I'm being honest. It seemed fairly obvious what was going on, so I'm not sure if the ending was meant to be some kind of surprise or not. And why was Jen so apprehensive? It's not really made clear.

The basic idea behind the story has been used many times before, and often to much better effect such as in the film "Never Let Me Go".

The writing was competent without being exceptional. In conclusion then, rather average.
