A Drop In The Well by Shawn Montgomery

Post by Lester Curtis »

About halfway through this story, I was seriously wondering when it was going to get to some point, other than detailing a minute-by-minute listing of non-events.

Then, by the time something did finally happen, it didn't make sense. That annoyed me, and I was already annoyed by the pointless detail of the first half of it.

The rest of it, clear to the end, continued to not make sense.

Well, okay . . . it seems that every person in the bar went to their own personal hell. Only the narrator survived. When I got to THE END, all I could think was that I'd just wasted my time.

Maybe this will creep out some of the rest of you, but for me, it failed.
I was raised by humans. What's your excuse?
