I didn’t find it all that creepy, but it was pretty well written. It gave a little glimpse into a near future world, but not much of one. And to be honest, the protagonist wasn’t a very sympathetic character. Mostly what I liked about the story was the mild inner struggle of the character. The gender bending was just a mild trick that was really only there so that the protagonist could identify with his former victims. I’m not a big fan of first person narrative, but this moved along well enough that I did enjoy the story.
