I think the reason why the first story worked so well for me is the setting. Rebekah Send a noteboard - 30/07/2010 11:25:22 AM
It's New Zealand. It's home (albeit home 200 years ago), and it was perfectly realised.

It took me a while to get into the Sloosha's Crossing bit as well. I had to start it again. But once I settled into the language I really enjoyed it.

Re the moral: I think it's not meant to be taken seriously. I got the feeling there was a gentle mockery of other ... distopian writers there. I think he was having fun with the genre.
