Synopsis: A sociopathic series killer is sentenced to “rightminding” – changing his brain function as well as his body. Some late 21st century winter morning in New England, the former predator finds herself as a prey.
Who would have guessed that peak oil would be linked so clearly to peak psychopathy?
Review: Neuroplasticity, „hacking“ the human mind to correct wrong-doers seems to be appealing at first, and an acceptable way out of death sentences. But I have my doubts:
Human dignity is inviolable.
I hope, future society will find a better way to re-integrate criminals, than turning wolves into lambs. The story reminds me heavily of Clockwerk Orange where the state redeems sociapathic Alex, „but at what cost?“. The narration itself has a good flow and I liked the setting and characterization of the serial killer.
