Editorial Reviews

The Breakfast Review
It feels a bit austere, perhaps in part because the story is set at a generic high school and therefore carries with it the idea of the functional institution. It's not necessarily a bad thing, any more than a bare white wall is a bad thing for the display of a surrealist painting. I feel that it focusses attention on the task at hand. This isn't, after all, a game in which we're really seeking to understand the protagonist's motivations and their place within the world. They have one idea and one idea only--the game of Rock-Paper-Scissors--and that all-consuming obsession is sufficient characterisation to carry the piece.
