Review: Selected from Dark They Were and Golden-Eyed

User Review  - J Davis - Goodreads

I loved how this story resurrected the idea of adaptation. It caused me to ponder whether we lose who we are by adapting to our surroundings or if we are somehow better because of the change we must make. Nice, quick read. Read full review
