I don’t doubt the veracity of the vision presented here: a police-state where all police are plain-clothed and quick on the trigger, but I wish it was presented with more heart. The author doesn’t seem to want to evoke caring from the reader. If I were cruel, I’d say his primary goal was to gain the reader’s admiration for his cleverness. And that he did—it’s a very clever conceit. But I like written words (especially fiction) to vividly draw human encounters and to insightfully communicate thoughtful observations and deliberations.
