I would be interested to know if this short book was originally written in English. There are some words (cavil) and (thrashing) that are not usually used in English in the contexts presented in this book.

The collection of short stories might actually be a collection of ideas for more fully developed future longer stories. Some, such as "Telephone Terror" do not make a lot of sense unless the reader focuses on the book title (Freedom) and tries to make some connection that each story is an attempt to escape from a present to a future that contains the idea of freedom, even when the freedom is found in death. This is too much work for the reader.

"Till Death Do Us Part" was the story with the most promise, an interesting way to find escape from routine.

"2100" was the next best. Aside from these two, the rest were just incomplete story ideas with way too much work for the reader with little reward. ( )
