It's a wonderful story. If you haven't read it yet, start immediately. If you don't have time or energy to read the whole thing, at least read the last sentence. Truer words have never been spoken.
I try hard not to write spoilers in reviews. So I won't discuss what happens, but if you don't like it, you're wrong. It's by an author of wonderful stories. As a critic I have to say something critical, so, the author's name is hard to spell.
Using my standard six is a C, seven a B, eight an A and nine an A plus, the Plot is an eight, and Technical Quality is a nine. Appeal to reviewer is a nine as well. Why not tens? Well, I try to give at most one ten a month and there is nearly half of March left. I might read another story that is even better, that I want to give the ten to. Lazlo has a number of stories I might want to re-read and give the ten to.
If you don't like the story, let me know why and I will turn in my reviewer credential on Fine Stories.
