REVIEW: “The Meadow” by Dina Lyuber

Review of Dina Lyuber, “The Meadow,” Luna Station Quarterly 22 (2015): Read online. Reviewed by Sara L. Uckelman.

Jaydren lives in a world that feels very much like a version of what our own future could be like: Technology at every turn, that links us to our social media, our entertainment, or transportation. All of his actions are directed at or built around things these. Lyuber did a good job of taking our current technology the next few steps down the line; what was less successful was the way this was integrated into the story, as I often felt like the story was the vehicle for the cataloguing of the technology, rather than the other way around.
