    1. This imperfect yet well conceived short story displays a spark of real talent in its author, Christian Cantrell As far as I can tell the author is new on the sci fi scene and I believe this Kindle edition of Brainbox was self published It could have used some editing, as there is at least one typo and a several minor grammatical errors, and the execution of the story doesn t quite live up to the imaginative and ambitious concept Even so, I really enjoyed reading Cantrell s short story, and ultim [...]


    2. I m not going to give a spoiler and only say this is a good short story believable characters and situation, and made me think I found myself wanting to know a little , and I hope the author considers developing the idea into a full length novel If you re looking for something short and sweet, I would recommend this one as I think the Kindle version was well worth 99 cents.


    3. Brainbox is a short story that I had actually picked up quite a while back Life has been crazy, but I had a few free moments and decided to plunge on in The author s description of the story gives a pretty good basic overview In the end it was a story that took a really intense set of circumstances to try to teach us that we should all play nice together as humans It was interesting, but I think it could have been fleshed out in some places Anyway, keep in mind that it is a short story so if you [...]


    4. This short story had a lot potential than what was shown, i believe.The message was a strong one, and its starting to be familiar that Cantrell stories are about hope for mankind or at least, some sort of goal to be reached, even if the path is always troubled, conflicted and truly horrible But so is mankind, right This was a little militaristic, but the main story is about a man, his family and after losing everything his twisted plan to get ally and enemy working together to a common goalIts [...]


    5. This book posits a world where the only habitable zone is one degree around the equator due to man produced planet cooling The hero comes up with s possible solution that will allow humanity to survive but at a dreadful price This resonated with me because of two similar stories read too long ago to remember title or author One foresaw humans fleeing from glaciers advancing from the north, only to eventually see the ice advancing from the south The other was of the last person on earth when a sh [...]


    6. I don t read a lot of short stories but I enjoyed this one While there are many stories about humans vs technology, this story has an interesting twist The self sacrificing protagonist purposely designed technology that turned against humans with the intent of bringing an end to the war amongst the three super powers of the world At the rate the war is going, humans are on the path to self destruction and the only way they can survive is if there s something that can force them to unite And alth [...]


    7. Once again Cantrell employs a fractured structure to tell his tale And once again it does him an injustice His story this time around isn t as interesting and his characters uninvolved Even his writing is sloppy It reads like Cantrell knows his story and wrote it like the readers do too It s so minimalist I had to read the ending several times just to understand it He attempts to hit a few emotional cues for motivation but they fall flat and empty In the end, we are left uninvested, uninterested [...]


    8. Brainbox was my second Christian Cantrell read and I must say I enjoyed it as much as the Epoch Index I really enjoy the way Mr Cantrell works such fine detail explaining tech mech into his work Ohh man, what I would give to see him toss around some well placed zulu time headers The ending cracked me up Well done Mr Cantrell.


    9. This was a short story that did not live up to my expectations Like another reviewer mentioned, I found it in need of some editing, and the story itself was fractured I may still try to read another of Cantrell s books, because the concepts are interesting I borrowed this through Prime.


    10. Really interesting story It is definitely a short story, though Too short I kept on trying to get to the next page, thinking that maybe my screen was freezing up again, but it turned out it was the end That s how sudden it was Doesn t make it any less interesting, though.


    11. It took me a little bit to understand the protagonist in this short story, and when I got it I appreciated what an original anti hero Cantrell created, as well as the message regarding war and international conflict.



    12. After reading and thoroughly enjoying Containment 5 star i started seeking other work by Christian Cantrell.Didn t think a short story could be so enjoyable, definitely kept me intriqued.


    13. confusingSo the ending put me off Until that point I was liking the story I would like to hear about the inventions of the world.


    14. Great sic fi premise with an out of order story arc Brainbox would have easily made a full length novel with a satisfying depth and final conclusion.


    15. Depending on what side of the bed you woke up on, this could be either a long short story or short novella.Another good concept for a longer story.


    16. Very interesting ending As a reader you don t know who to side with and the whole story doesn t unravel until the end.
