This is, as far as I know and remember, the shortest story I've read and reviewed. Short stories are something else. They're like an exam, where you have to cram everything you know into a much shorter time-frame. You've got to state your claims, put forth your argument, and prove your point much more quickly than in a novel.

Well, I absolutely loved it.

You Only Die Once is a biography of sorts, a 1st person narrative where we're being told someone's whole life's story in the span of 15 minutes.

Short, without bullshit or empty feelings and as it goes through many troubled minds. Loved it.

An intriguing and dark short story about the binary concepts that accompany us through our journey - life and death, love and resentment, apathy and little passing glimpses of joy, living and taking a life.

He started writing at the age of four. Soon he realized he was better at writing than talking and he still is today. He doesn’t like small talk. But his characters like it, use it and they’re quite good at it. Jaka believes that this is one of

“How the hell can it end happily? Raise your hand if you survived your own death because you had a trick up your sleeve when the Grim Reaper showed up at your doorstep. The end is known and unavoidable. Life is a fucking tragedy, which no one survives. That's how it is. Mankind cannot escape the inevitable, and Earth cannot avert its pending demise. The sun, the universe and everything that exists will not survive. It will all come to an end one day. That is the only unquestionable truth.” 0 likes
