Before the Uprising

Flash Fiction Short Story by Katherine Sparrow.
Read by Jen Rhodes
PodCastle Original (Text on the forums)

Pretty much substance free, but nice, dream-like imagery and an interesting rhythm. It says something that this sounds like one of my more ambivalent poetry reviews than my short fiction reviews.

Basically, women rising up against the oppression of the patriarchy, vaguely, with lots of bikes and not much meaning or emotion, despite the word pictures.

A stellar reading though, Jen Rhodes is a reader I'm looking forward to hearing again.

2 greasy bike escapes out of 5.
