Escape from Spiderhead is a story about a many who is part of clinical drug trials as part of his imprisonment. As we analyze the story, we discussed questions of consent, murder, and the definition of love. Maya, Anais and Gerald all loved the story, but both Tamara and Rammy had issues being sucked into the story, or with George Saunders use of languag. Rammy found it a bit explicit for his taste.
Don’t forget to rate the story! For the history of our goofy system, see Anais’ post “Read Short Stories or Ray Bradbury Cries.” On a scale of 1-6 Bradberries, how do you rate Escape from Spiderhead?
