    One thought on “Games”

    1. This is an interesting short story and worked well as an audio book. I may well listen to it again as it is a complex story but still is a very interesting story.

    2. Hmm, tough one to review. I found it intriguing, albeit at times difficult to follow. I think it may benefit from a second reading. Complex for something so short.
