I'm Starved for You (Kindle Single) (Positron)

I'm Starved for You - Margaret Atwood This is really chapter one of a longer work and not a short story per se.I've never read any Atwood before and bought this on the strength of her reputation, the concept and the fact that I was looking for something short.It's not bad. I found the tropes of a supposedly ideal society with heavy social control to be very well worn. The idea rebellion against this form of conformity would be sexual is not new either but I guess I personally have read less of it. Still it had a feeling of an old-fashioned future dystopia masquerading as a utopia.Not sure I'll be picking up episode two.
