on July 31, 2010 :
This is a dark piece of a world falling apart, economies crumbling, civilization in an obvious decline, but most of all, of the deteriorating relationship of two people. The Implosion is supposed to change all this, but nobody seems to really know what the Implosion is, what it will mean, what the consequences will be. All they know is that it’s coming, and soon. But everyone is sure it’s something good…
Implosion, for me, was a short but powerful piece. It underscores the nature of human relationships, regardless of the times we live in, the circumstances under which we struggle for existence. I’m not so sure the Implosion is the cause of the problems for the two lead characters in this story, or the very nature of humanity itself is causing the Implosion. All I can suggest is that you read the story and get the answers for yourself.
This story is thought provoking. I give it five stars for this reason, because it left me thinking about a lot of things, and some not in a good way. And if a tale can do that to you, it’s a powerful one!
