Review: User Pays, by Tabitha Ormiston-Smith

29 May

upFREE on Smashwords

A thinking person’s political parable – short and chilling – showing all-too-clearly the hazards of following political dogma without giving it even the most cursory discerning, intelligent thought.

Very well-written, though too short for me. I would have liked to have seen this story more developed. Perhaps the author may have plans to build on this idea – it certainly has merit, in my view. In this day and age, following doctrines sheep-like is an extravagance humanity simply can’t afford anymore.

    My hubby and I always call it following the herd (like cattle).

      Yeah. The compulsion is the same. 🙂

    Cattle or sheep, it’s time everyone woke up and listened to their own minds instead of playing follow the leader. You have me very curious about this one Ella. That cover hints at danger?

      Well, when did politics ever lead to ‘happily ever after’?
