    Excellent

    When the author tweeted about a 1 star review this story received, I had to read it for myself. The story is compelling and interesting, thoughtful and well imagined. The "oral history" multi 3rd person narrative viewpoint is an interesting and fresh approach to story telling. The technical and political ramifications are explored without becoming polemic. The story is concise and a quick read. Mr. Scalzi should ask for more money. (Thanks to Mr. Scalzi for mentioning Kobo in a blog post, which is how I came to acquire this copy.)

    Novel Approach to a Fun Story

    The book is written as snippets of writings and interviews after a flu-like virus alters the brains of ~1% of the human population sometime in our near future. From the beginning, I fell right into the format and never had to think about how the story was written. Unlocked is the backstory for Scalzi's Locked In. I'm glad I read it first. But, as a novella and not just an introduction, Unlocked stands on its own as a complete, well written story.

    Interview style

    This is the prequel to a forthcoming novel about people who have to cope with locked in syndrome. It is in interview format, and I would have enjoyed it more if it was written as a novel-length work of fiction rayher than a novella.
