Review by: Marcia Carrington on June 12, 2012 :
This is an intriguing short story which deftly creates its narrative world with sound descriptions, these defining a picture of the sounds and sights very well. The only drawback is that it is too short - it would definitely benefit from lengthening, to thereby explore the elements it briefly alludes to in more detail.

An intriguing and nicely written story with natural dialogue. Ray Daley is correct in suggesting that this would make a very good novel — although it does at times sound a bit like "The Uglies." Well proof read too which make a change for around here. Great work.

Review by: Ray Daley on April 22, 2012 :
Instead of sticking to a thousand word limit, you should develop this into something longer.

It'd be cool to see the world before, perhaps as a prologue so you can meet some the characters who go underground. Maybe learn about the bombing & the reasons behind it. develop out the quest for the library, the discovery then the search for the equipment to read it. possibly even have a few inserts from the ppl in the bunker.

I reckon you have more than enough to work into a novella here. Go for it!
