The third instalment continues very much in the same vain as the previous two, although this episode contains far more exposition than the previous two. That said, it is still very enjoyable and seeing how they both internally struggle to comprehend the events at the end of episode two is a lot of fun. If you are enjoying the series then you will probably enjoy this one also, but be prepared for a slightly slower pace as there is little to no action.

This is the third episode of Margaret Atwood's "Positron" sequence, and should be read in conjunction with the other three. Each episode is very short and very full of action. The story is one of Atwood's imaginative leaps into the near future, and shows what happens when people abandon responsibility for their own lives and accept what Authority offers them without question. In exchange for physical comfort and security they commit outrageous acts at the behest of the State.
Atwood's style, as ever, combines surprising idiosyncracy with impressive elegance and wit, and is a great pleasure to read.

Really enjoying this series of novellas - have now had to buy Episode Four to find out the conclusion of the story. Great characters and a wonderful futuristic setting where, even though society has changed beyond recognition, human traits (like 'the grass is always greener') still hold sway.

I'm an Atwood fan and feel that her dystopias are her forte and Positron doesn't disappoint - dark humour, disturbing vision and yet again an installment that can be enjoyed with or without the rest of the series.

I loved Episode One; Episode Two was only slightly less absorbing; Episode Three set the seal on a terrific trilogy. Atwood has done it again. She's yet to disappoint.

I just drink these stories up. My only criticism is I want more. Margaret Atwood at her best, genius science fiction with a stimulating flow of words.

Fun, but not up to the standard of episodes 1 and 2. I get the impression that Atwood is perhaps losing interest.

The problem is that these short stories go far too quickly and leave you wanting more!

Margaret Atwood has a style of writing that leaves you wanting more, the Positron trilogy is no different, Erase Me being the last of the 3 stories leaves you wanting to know more about the characters. It's infuriatingly short, you want more chapters, want to go on their journeys with them, find out what becomes of Stan & Charmaine...I feel there may be more to come to this story, the trilogy felt like a beginning.

not everyone's cup of tea and not worth the money too short
