Two Ways of Living, by Robert Reed

March 30, 2017

We read the shorty story by Robert Reed “Two Ways of Living” in the Clarkesworld’s ISSUE 126, March 2017

The main idea of this story may be about a man hibernating to a future with better star-travelling conditions but what attracts our interest is the dog. A dog that has attached an AI on his collar thus making him able to communicate with the humans. Don’t we always wonder what our pets would tell us if they had they way to talk to us? As the main character sleeps and wakes after a couple of years each time he meets a lady who causes him only trouble but her friend the dog in the mean time evolves by using technology into a speaking being.

Pros:

+ The dog

Cons:

– Not much going on apart from the sleeper’s interaction with the dog. But for the story’s size is acceptable.
