5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking 2 May 2012
By Alex
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hi

This is the third short story I have read by Stephen Livingston and my favourite.

The central character (who is also the reader) is given three options for the future, one of which he (or we) must pick and none of which seam that attractive.

The setting for the start and end of the story is a club with very loud music. Clubbers are thought of as being the young, and the young are not thought of as being typical voters. I could be missing the point but I guess part of the message is that young and old, we are all responsible for picking the future of the world that we live in.

Hope to read more from Stephen Livingston soon.

Alex

5.0 out of 5 stars will make you think! 28 April 2012

I have never read anything by the author before and don't normally choose to read short stories - I like something I can get my teeth into, but I found this to be a very well written powerful story, not just for the Scots, but for everyone, and will certainly get you thinking.
