This was a very thought-provoking story. I really liked how the issue of resource inequality was addressed. I'm not sure I like the ending, though, because it doesn't actually solve anything in a systemic, sustainable way.

I also kinda liked it. It reminds of a Snowpiercer (2013) in space. Maybe Spacepiercer? :P

The beginning got me. It’s such an effective plot twist. And we feel for the characters because they’re so young and naïve.

But I didn’t like everything being verbalized, nor did I need it. It’s explaining too much to the reader.

I also didn't like the ending. It came too soon and left me with a horrible aftertaste. It ended just when it was getting good. I was really enjoying this and BAM! The End.

I just wanna go pro before AI takes over and the bot dogs from Boston Dynamics kill us all.
