It's not that the story wasn't well-written, or that the concept wasn't good. It just didn't resonate with me. Not much happened; there was a bit of commentary on human achievement (or lack there of) and approach to life, and a fatalist's puppet show and theatrical performance as prelude to doom. It was probably too short. It accomplished much in its brief words, but didn't accomplish everything I think it hoped to.

Well-written, but just not my cup of tea. I probably should have trusted my reaction to the creepy illustration.
