REVIEW: “User Warning” by Charlotte Ariel Finn

Review of Charlotte Ariel Finn, “User Warning,” Radon Journal 2 (2022): 8-15 — Read online. Reviewed by Sara L. Uckelman.

The premise of the story is a solid one: When we reach the point that parts of our brain go virtual, it’s inevitable that someone will hack into the backups and release into the internet. The story itself is off the fallout of this happening.

However, it’s a story that’s told in 2nd person, meaning it’s hard to latch on to a sympathetic character to empathise with. So for me, the execution didn’t quite live up to the premise.
