Whoa.... (Imagine that a deeply shocked, whoa...)

I had no idea that a short could make me feel like that...

How can a book you can read in a 1/2 hour really make you feel such strong emotion?

I used to think that reader/character connection comes from page count. I mean, how else are you going to find enough time to really know who they are and connect to them on that certain level? Sometimes it does, depending on what the author is trying to overcome, (See Dan & Vadim). Well, I've come to realize that other times all it takes is a really great writer. Hugh Howey isn't the only one I've read and liked this much, Jordan Castillo Price is another. These people know how to write a short that still packs a punch.

What a story. If it was standalone, I'd still be seriously impressed. It's not, there are sequels. That's even better, because I need to know more. I want to know why!
