This is a pretty decent short story and since it's free I certainly don't feel cheated out of anything, time included. I'd say it's pretty important to read the little blurb first before diving in because it doesn't really explain what's going on in the beginning and you can feel little out of the loop. The premise is pretty interesting and I like how the world is basically evolving thanks to the stupidity of man (nuclear weapons being thrown about). There were moments where I was seriously confused like the sudden introduction of religion when it's stated that no one has any anymore, it's not super religious or anything just kind of felt random. I think the conversations were pretty stiff and the relationship building left something to be desired. Overall it's decent.
