After getting to three of the different endings, I still can't say I've fully understood this visual novel, but it definitely intrigued me. I should probably read the book that inspired it.

(Is this a reflection of Brexit concerns? Or a tirade about the spirit of English nationalism? As an old anarchist I find it hard to empathize with nationalist sentiments, but I can definitely empathize with concerns that the place we live in has lost its way and its spirit).

At times it reminded me of a Samuel Beckett with less of his humor and some of his social commentary (and I think that is the best compliment I can give to this work).

I am not so convinced by its structure in separate episodes, without an apparent link between them. I think a way could have been found to address all these themes with a single narrative instead of many short episodes, and that the end result would benefit from it.

In any case, although I don't know if I liked it exactly, I can say that this work has interested and intrigued me, and for that reason it has been worth the time to read it.
