Thursdays: short story review


Hello everyone! I’m here with this weeks Thursday post and mini review. I really enjoyed the melancholic story this week, but it felt unfinished, in a way.


Interested in joining? See below for what to do to be a part of it!


  • On Thursday, I will pick a short story from for us to all read…
  • The next Thursday, we will all review the story that was picked the previous week…
  • The review can be in depth or short and snappy! There are no boundaries on how you want to review the story…
  • After my own personal review of that weeks story, I will post the next story to read for next week…
  • And on and on it goes…
  • Please remember to tag back to my post (pingback!!) if you join in on this meme, that way I can read all your reviews!



3 stars


This story was so beautifully done, but it ended too suddenly. Like a lot of the comments on Tor, I want more!

I liked the writing in this one, it wasn’t to difficult to get your head around but it built up such a beautiful, and often times tragic, image in your head, it was like you were there with Ansel.

I have my theory on the ending, that Ansel has outgrown this game, in the literal sense, but also the idea that he has outgrown looking for his sister. “Outgrowing stuff is depressing, she’d say. I’d rather not” – as Louise had said, but it’s time for him to move on.
