on July 17, 2014 :
A very, very short story and a good example of what can be achieved in so few words. The story is very well written, and even has an identifiable beginning, middle and an end, but ultimately it's just too short to be wholly satisfying. The sense of suspense is lost because there are realistically only two ways in which the story can end, and also because there's insufficient time in a story of this microscopic length to get to know the character and therefore care about what happens to him. Debt also seemed a rather obvious motivation for the character engaging in this activity, a more original, inventive reason wouldn't have gone amiss. But overall, a very good experiment with micro fiction.
