For such a short story, I was surprised that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I enjoy short, short stories because of their length. They don't normally demand a lot of your time or make you think too hard. They just give you something fast to read and normally push aside afterward.
Going Down was a fast read. There wasn't much to think deeply about. This isn't putting it down in anyway because the punch that many short stories lack for me was found in this one. The story set up for being almost anything, then things started falling into place and I was thinking ok what'll happen next.
Then I finished the story and was thought BRILLIANT. I don't think I would have changed anything with the abrupt way this story ended. I realized what was going to happen not long before the ending, but there was still room for the imagination to paint its own picture of the aftermath.
There's not much else I can say in reviewing this story. That's mainly because of how short it is. It's hard to not reveal too much if I were to get into detail. But since it won't take long to read...and it's free, I don't think any reader will be wasting his or her time by reading this story.
