A New View of IVF

This twist on a couple’s desire to start their family via IVF is unexpected. It’s thought-provoking and disturbing, but original and plausible. The story gets your mind wondering…

What I liked was the protagonist’s introspection about his experiences. It gave more insight about who he is as well as who his wife is and the relationship they share. It was a cool way to present the tale.

What I disliked can be a spoiler, so I need to be cautious… I’ll simple say, the ending wigged me out a bit. LOL It was a little to “show-and-tell” with strangers for me.

There’s a creep factor to this story because of the genetic engineering aspects. It gives richness to this dark short story. If you enjoy sci-fi, you’ll find this quick read a delight.
