The piece is written in a fashion that captures the era. A first person perspective, it quickly and easily covers the life of a woman from her young adult life to an gray haired woman. It feels very much like the journal of the woman, revealing the authors insights into the tragic events that feels authentic.

Written well, but written to be clever, this fast moving short story takes a very specific viewpoint and tries to drive home a point.
While not knowing what the story was about, I already knew the ending almost immediately. It felt very transparent, and it did not have the same impact knowing how clever the author was trying to be. It is very difficult to write a surprise ending like this, especially if the story loses its impact because the reader catches on before they are supposed to.

Great bit of fiction with wonderful potential. Really set the mood well.
What makes the undead interesting is that they were human, not just physically, but emotionally and morally. More of that would go a long way in improving this story.
Also found the switch between the two characters internal thoughts a bit jarring. And because of this, and the use of pronouns instead of their names, I was not always sure which character I was focused on.

Good story. The opening scenes were just great in the teahouse. Really set the feeling well while developing the characters. After that, as the reader, I felt like scenes were very quick, and I wanted more in each of them. The transition sentences didn't help either when time passed. It felt like I was being pushed along, as if that part was unimportant, and the author just wanted to move the story along to get to where he/she wanted. If you write it, make it important and interesting, or don't write it at all.
