England - Rewind

There are some interesting questions we could ask about what happens if aliens arrive, visit for a while, turn 13 random people into 13 year old children - with their adult personalities and memories - and then leave.

England does not ask them, at least not before chasing me out of his book at around the 100 page mark. Instead he gives us a dystopia where government studies go wrong, the rewound people are remanded to the custody of their families, treated as minor children, and taken advantage of. He may have done more with the idea, but I doubt it. I was so turned off that I did not even bother flipping ahead to the end to see what happened.

Great concept, stupid execution.
