The Machine Stops
Hey all, recently had to read this short story for my Utopian fiction course and I just love it so I figured since it is posted online I'd share the link with you and hopefully we can have a good discussion about it.

I don't want to get too far into it on my own but I really liked the final chapter, hopefully I'll get the chance to expand on that after we get some discussion going Smile

Thanks, Green. Now I've got something to read!

RE: The Machine Stops
No prob, it's a really good read and it's a pretty good preview of how the world would work 100 years after publication. It's really more of a novella than a short story but I downed it in an hour and a half or so, it's a pretty light read.
