A truly enigmatic story. It leaves the reader with questions but also leaves us mesmerized by the beauty of the prose. It's poetic, metaphorical, and artistic. Some areas seem non-sensical, just because of the way in which some words are used. Other times, it makes perfect and clear sense. It's hard for me to pinpoint the method that you used to write this. It may have been streaming consciousness combined with conscious structure, or it could have been more disciplined. I'm leaning more towards streaming consciousness for some parts of it. I say this only because some words and phrases seemed random as opposed to well thought out.

Regardless, I enjoyed this as a piece of artistic literature. Very well done in terms of creating a mistique and keeping the reader engaged.

You're use of some Western slang works well at times and not so well at others. With the minor flaws in English,... read

    This story is well written. The concept, however, seems recycled. I could swear that I've almost read a story like this before. My only recommendation would be to slightly change the plot, while keeping the general idea intact. All stories should have a mystic quality, and yours definitely succeeds at that. You're a good writer, but that doesn't matter. You also need a unique... read
