It's a silly rating system we have here. Three stars means "I like it", but the truth is I don't
like it. Not that that's a bad thing! This is not a story to be liked - there's no "happily ever after", and there probably hasn't even been any "happily-before". It's disturbing - and that's a good thing!
It's short - and that unfortunately isn't my cup of tea. I've never been a fan of short stories, but this story is a pretty good example of a short story anyway. In the short medium, far more must be left to the reader's imagination than in a novel: what did happen to the world? what are Munies? how does it end?!
That last prevents me rating it higher - I like stories to have a beginning, middle and end (very pre-post-modern of me...) and this has no beginning or
end. Now, if the author told me the rest
of the story - I'd be all over it.
