I'm not exactly sure how to classify this short story. It was an interesting read, dealing with the situations life sometimes places us in and the choices that bring us to those situations, but it wasn't all introspection. There's real action to this story, complete with a ticking clock, a deadly and possibly inescapable trap, and man-eating cows. Hissing, fast moving, man-eating cows.

An interesting short story with no actual ending. It's more left up to the reader to decide why certain events occur and what their meanings are. Very strange with no real plot but actually had me thinking about it for a while after I was done with it. I will be looking into other works by this author.
Very interesting... the beginning had me wanting to put the book down and walk away but luckily, it was short. From there on it was a very good story filled with suspense and confusion... Man-eating Cows?!
