Alison Shaw answered a call one night. One that would change her life, for better or for worse.

 

I want to say this had almost a 2001: A Space Odyssey feel to it. As Alison progresses through her development, the tone changes. And then it just gets sad. Yet, strangely heartwarming. Whatever the mood, the writing style matched with reader emotion. Enhanced it. The style goes from concrete, where we know exactly what’s going on, to obscure. It follows with the natural progression of the narrative.

 

It’s an intense little tale. I liked it, and am now having an existential crisis.
