I have not read a great deal of this genre, but this long short story left me wanting to read more, the transcription of our computing technology is very cunning. The exaggeration of Dickensian brutality seems like a warning about the potential future of unrestrained capitalism. The story is fairly simple but its transformation of wretchedness to a happy outcome is satisfying and uplifting.
