Two-faced Nitpicker

I'm here just to scope this place out as an alternative to goodreads and as a little bookbank in case I ever bank out of goodreads. (And did I also mention goodreads?)

 

About me: I'm a pretty lazy reviewer but big on reading so don't expect much reviewing but when reviews come, do beware of endless rambling about everything, including things unimportant like digressing on other unrelated books.

 

"Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you"

Fireflies - Cory Archie I don't really read short stories but this is possibly the best dystopian I've read.
If Cory Archie can do all that in a short story, you dystopian novelists need to crouch in a corner and rethink your choices.
How does one create a world, simply a dystopian world, with no tyrannical governments after you, or rebel groups, but just a dystopian world with people just wanting to survive? Imagine if this author wrote a novel. THE GLORY.

It was so beautiful and yes, if you have read the other reviews, the last few sentences will have you gripping the computer tightly after being blasted with such. an. ending. *breaks down in sobs*

Now go click on the url and read it. NOW.
