  • Privileged Lives and Other Lies on March 23, 2012

    I’ve been following this writer’s stories for several years. At the beginning of the year, she started posted chapters from this story on her blog. Ten chapters had been posted when the entire story became available for purchase as an ebook. I bought the ebook immediately because I couldn’t wait to find out what happened. The story takes place in an alternate future, a future that seems very realistic. I won’t mention the name of the website, but the US government was able to take it down and the owners arrested without due process. That’s exactly the type of things that happen to the two main characters in this story – except that instead of losing a website, they lose their freedom. The US government has total control over what they can and cannot do – there is no due process, no recourse to protest what is happening to them. I think that was what was most scary about this story. My only complaint was that I think it ended too soon. I don’t want to give anything away, but I would have liked to have had things not wrapped up so neat and quick. Maybe there’ll be a sequel? This universe needs to have more stories. Oh, and the cover art is great. Very appropriate for the story.
