4.0 out of 5 stars If you are feeling starved of good sci-fi, try this, 26 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I'm Starved for You (Kindle Single) (Positron Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Pros - easy to get into, plenty to make you think.

Cons - is part of a series so there is no proper resolution.

At first glance, this opening episode of Atwood's new series is reminiscent of a slightly older style of sci-fi and definitely harks back to The Handmaid's Tale or Ray Bradbury. A simple concept based around an alternate America that is, in this case, both utopian and dystopian. However, with her deft touch, Atwood is able to raise a number of interesting regarding social reform and the human condition. This short story does contain a lot of setting up, assumedly to help with the development of the later episodes, but that doesn't necessarily detract what is an intriguing tale slowly unfolding for the reader.
I am really getting into these Kindle Singles and this is another excellent addition.
