Tor.com Thursdays: short story review

TOR.COM THURSDAYS - A BURDEN SHARED

Hello lovelies! Here is my latest Tor.com Short Story review. This week’s story was poignant, but I didn’t really click with it.

Interested in joining? See below for what to do to be a part of it!

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

  • On Thursday, I will pick a short story from Tor.com for us to all read…
  • The next Thursday, we will all review the Tor.com story that was picked the previous week…
  • The review can be in depth or short and snappy! There are no boundaries on how you want to review the story…
  • After my own personal review of that weeks story, I will post the next story to read for next week…
  • And on and on it goes…
  • Please remember to tag back to my post (pingback!!) if you join in on this meme, that way I can read all your reviews!

THIS WEEK’S TOR.COM STORY WAS: A BURDEN SHARED BY JO WALTON

Mini-review:

I didn’t hate this story, but I also didn’t love it. I get what it was trying to do and to represent but I just didn’t click with it.

It was certainly a unique and interesting concept, but I felt the characters were unrealistic and time jumped too quickly.

The comments section on this particular short is quite heated, the view of women’s roles in this is definitely up for debate, but I’m tired and I can’t think of many good points to make.


NEXT WEEK’S TOR.COM STORY IS: Burned Away BY Kristen Simmons

When rumors of an uprising in Metaltown’s factories hits Bakerstown, sixteen-year-old wannabe reporter Caris knows she’s found the story that will finally prove her worth to the Journal.
